Burglars who broke into the home of a New York Giant left racist graffiti


Burglars who broke into the New Jersey home of New York Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock on Tuesday night left racist graffiti including a swastika, the letters "KKK," and phrase "Go back to Africa," reports ESPN

Whitlock says that the burglars took video game systems and jewelry. According to the athlete, it's the second break-in at the home since late November. 

"It just re-establishes that no matter where you are, no matter who you are, this can happen to you," said Whitlock. 

Whitlock, his wife, Ashley, and their two children were out of the house when the burglary took place. The intruders supposedly gained access via a small window at the back of the home. 

Whitlock says that he believes the graffiti took some time to complete, and not something that could have been finished in a short amount of time. 

Whitlock posted about the break-in on his social media profiles.
