Who are Lawrence Jones’ parents?

Jones opened up about his upbringing during his Life, Liberty & Levin appearance on Sunday. “I’m a simple man,” he said. “I’m from Dallas, Texas. My mom got pregnant with me at 16, my dad married her, they had me. I’m the oldest of three. And I have lived the American dream—struggling, and then being instilled with values that said that you have to work hard to get where you wanted in life.”

What are Lawrence Jones’ politics?

The 29-year-old clarified his political stance during the interview on Sept. 26 and said, “I’ve been on the left, I’ve been on the right, and now I’m more of a libertarian [who] wants to check government and government officials. And that’s my job: to speak up for my community, speak up for the voiceless, the forgotten men and women in this country. I don’t believe there is an unbiased press, so I am honest about me being a libertarian, but I also hold both sides accountable.”

He also said that “Black elites” have issues with him but he gets “love and respect” from people who are “actually in the community.”

“I think if you judge me based on what you see on social media from the pundits, then you’ll say, ‘OK, maybe Black America is rejecting this idea of Lawrence Jones and what he believes,’” he added. “But if you go down on the ground and see the communities I get to talk to on a daily basis, I think you’ll get a much different picture.”
