What They're Saying: Ron Jans

“I have a lot of hip hop songs in my playlist. But I didn’t know the song that was being played in the dressing room. I don’t feel guilty. Because I am not a racist. What I have done is somewhat awkward in America. But between a clumsy action and what is happening now — that is incomprehensible. I think it’s really a shame, because I’m really enjoying myself in America. This whole situation just feels so strange. ”
