    Hard to believe that the Dumborris Smith camp wasn't sitting on this funny Gruden email for a very long time, as its release coincided perfectly with his reelection bid for whatever semi-permanent, race-based sinecure he's been bungling for years. Gruden should have just flat-out denied that he wrote it.

    I never understood why disciptive comments about a persons looks are considered “racist”. So what the guy has big lips. Is it true? I imagine so, so where is the racism. It might be rude or cruel but its not racist.

    There are white people with big lips too. It’s all just an excuse to allow the woke crowd to attack people and make it sound like they’re sticking up for blacks.

    It’sa way for them to control the language and exercise power over people.

    Gruden already had his obligatory groveling apology issued.

    On the other hand, Lester Holt has no lips. Lol. Some do, some don't.

    Exactly. What Gruden said was no worse than calling a bald guy "chrome dome" or calling a short guy a "shrimp." It may be rude but it's not "bigoted" or "evil." Certainly not newsworthy.

    People of all races have flaws, but the woketurds want us to pretend that only white people have them.

    We're all the same, but we're all different. But don't you dare take notice lol.

    Gruden already predictably groveled for forgiveness.

    I remember when the liberal propaganda show MASH did a whole episode about Frank Burns's thin lips. Thin lips are a white trait.

    Liberals didn't have a problem with that show. But they do when you talk about blacks. It's the racist double standard of the liberals.

    The raiders will have to draft a quota next year make up for Grudens racism.

    saying blacks like watermelon and fried chicken is supposedly racist...
    I like that stuff too.....Is saying Italians like pasta the same thing? No

    What a weird, screwed up world we live in......

    Gruden is toast. Emails also included misogynist and anti-gay language.

    "Misogynist" = thinking there are biological differences between men and women
    "Anti-gay" = thinking that a man sticking his **** up another guy's *** is creepy and weird (which it is)

    Gruden fired...I hope he sues. Edit: Looks like he resigned.

    Look for the Raiders to go full woke now.

    Well that’s likely bad news for the White players, like Renfrow, who were actually getting a fair shake.

    I also hope Gruden goes down swinging. And why not; he’s never going to work in the NFL again in any sort of capacity.

    Lol… wasn’t expecting clown world to escalate this quickly, but here we are. Maybe the feds will investigate him for “domestic terrorism,” and the DOJ can pursue charges for “civil rights violations.”

    Reminder #10 trillion to never, ever apologize.

    Meanwhile black players like Antonio Brown are still in the league. I am sure during any game on any Sunday you will hear black players yell the "n" word, hear gay slurs, slurs against the White players as well. Clown world indeed and the lack of accountability of a certain shade of people continues to go on unfettered.

    White Men are number one target in America these days. Smh, ten years ago in an email and you're screwed now.

    Guaranteed the next HC will be Black! Haha. Sucks because they have a few of our guys that are worth rooting for, but I hope they tank rest of season. Plus screw Lost Wages.

    Carr, Crosby, Renfrow are all guys to root for. I wonder if Mayock survives. After the unnecessary cutting of Muse and the snap reduction for Nick K. they have not been the same team optics wise (same with Nassib deciding to be an openly gay player).

    Yeah I'm willing to bet most of the players and coaches have no problem with his "homophobic" and "misogynist" comments. Wasn't the "racist" comment just about someone's lips being big?
    Edit: just read above comments about it

    Either way I highly doubt he would be using such language if there was any doubt on whether or not the recipient would be offended. Obviously somebody's out to get him.

    Kwiatkoski limited to 12 snaps yesterday, 19% -- and with those 12 snaps he had 7 tackles, 5 of them solo. It's obscene what's been done to him this season.

    Interesting that these homophobic emails were just revealed after one of his players came out as gay. Just a coinkydink, nothing to see here, move along.

    Is Nassib actually bothered about it or are people just getting mad for him?

    Everyone knows about the ten year old one referring to the lips of the players union head, but what about all these other ones that were unearthed. Supposedly the New York Times had a story about it today, but I'd like to actually read what Gruden is accused of writing before passing judgment.

    A month or so ago, Mike Richards the director of Jeopardy, was going to become the permanent host until he was accused of "misogyny" (one of those ridiculous words used indiscriminately to the point it has no real meaning) and racism dating to some remarks he made a decade ago, but I never did read anywhere what he allegedly said that was so offensive to the snowflake totalitarians.
