Rugby Field in North Carolina Desecrated with Swastikas and Profane Graffiti
This week, the Cape Fear Rugby Club’s practice field was vandalized with swastikas and hateful phrases. The graffiti was found on Monday and the club believes the incident took place over the weekend.
Along with the swastikas and stars of David were the words “you like” and several crudely drawn pictures of male genitalia. Taking credit for the incident was the name tag “Lil Redd.”
The vandalized pitch is located only a few blocks away from the B’nai Israel synagogue – a home to many in Wilmington, North Carolina’s Jewish community.
