Nikita Whitlock is the latest person to experience a hate crime since Donald Trump was elected president of the United States (what could possibly be the connection?!). The Giants fullback reported a break-in at his New Jersey home that included racially charged vandalism.
The first thing Whitlock saw when he walked in to his home was a graffiti swastika on the wall which he’s covered up to protect his 6-year-old son.
He went on to discover the letters “KKK” scrawled in his basement apartment, in addition to the words, “Go back to Africa.”
“It just re-establishes that no matter where you are, no matter who you are, this can happen to you,” he said.
This is the second time Whitlock and his family have experienced a break-in over the past six months. Police are still investigating the first incident that took place around Thanksgiving. The Whitlocks said they are moving out of this home, but had decided that before either of the break-ins.
