John Rocker Goes on Racist Rant About New York City

The former Atlanta Braves closer spewed his venomous thoughts at seemingly any and every nationality in what remains an infamous December 1999 issue of Sports Illustrated. “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?” (Photo: Rick Stewart/Getty Images)
