We’re appalled by the racist graffiti that defaced the Jackie Robinson statue outside MCU Park in Brooklyn. We condemn this hateful act of vandalism, it does not represent the views of Brooklyn or any community of our great city. Jackie Robinson made history by breaking down barriers; he inspired a nation in his pursuit of equality.

We are confident that the NYPD will find the person or persons responsible for this incident, and we urge anyone with information to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1 800 – 577-TIPS
