FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has apologized after a website posted a 4-year-old video of him making a racially insensitive comment. The Blast website reported that the video was shot in 2013 at a Dallas hotel by a white man who asked Jones if he would tape a message for his fiancee. Jones appeared to be joking when he says congratulations and that the groom will be with a "black girl tonight." Jones said the comment was inappropriate and "not who I am."
