“听, the Raiders stand for diversity, inclusion and social justice. We always have and we always will. The emails that came out are not what we stand for. So Jon Gruden is no longer head coach of the Raiders,” Davis told the newspaper.

There’s not much more I can say. All the talking heads are making up all sorts of stuff. That’s all it is. We don’t stand for it.
