NY Giants football player Nikita Whitlock had his apartment broken into, vandalized and then tagged with racist graffiti.

The CBS segment opens up by saying, "A New York Giants football player targeted by hate."

It's bad enough to have ones privacy violated by being a victim of a robbery, but then multiply that despair by 10, when the vandal(s) leave hatred, swastikas and KKK written on the walls as a parting gift.

Whitlock told CBS News' Valerie Castro this is the second time he's been vandalized.

Castro said, "This swastika now hidden behind a sheet to protect his six-year-old son is one of many pieces of graffiti on the walls of Nikita Whitlock's home in New Jersey. Some are so crass we had to blur them out. Among we can show you this KKK scrawled on a wall in the basement apartment. This piece says go back Africa"

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

Ashley Whitlock. said, “It’s very disgusting, actually. It’s very disheartening. You hear about things that do happen, but you never think, ‘Oh, this could happen to me.’”
