The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?

— John Rocker

The most thrilling John Rocker quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

I've taken a lot of crap from a lot of people.

Probably more than anybody in the history of this sport. I know Hank (Aaron) and Jackie (Robinson) took a good deal of crap, but I guarantee it wasn't for six years. I just keep thinking: How much am I supposed to take?


The media loves nothing more than when there is a racial scandal or something.

Racism, bigotry, these are just such hot button issues, and the media loves it.


My comments concerning persons afflicted with AIDS as well as various minority groups have left people wondering if I am a racist.


I'll admit I said something I shouldn't have said.


Even though it might appear otherwise from what I've said, I am not a racist.

I should not have said what I did because it is not what I believe in my heart.


The last thing I want to do... is offend people and ostracize myself.


I have a group of close personal friends that are all my world.

My family is my world. And as long as those people are happy with me, then I'm happy with myself.


Like me or don't like me, I'm not going to adjust my behavior, just to gain a few more positive fans.


I am extremely sorry for the stress and confusion I have brought on the Braves organization.


I'm merely a baseball player, guys. In the great scheme of things, my thoughts, opinions and attitudes are of little importance.


I have hurt people. It was unintentional, but nevertheless, there was damage done.
