Rapper Meek Mill shared a surveillance video of a White man allegedly spray-painting racist remarks on his grandmother’s Philadelphia home on Tuesday.

The suspect can be seen in the footage walking up to the house in the Graduate Hospital section of the city on Monday night. He then proceeded to write “ACORN” on the side off the home.

According to the rapper, the word is slang in the area that is used to mean “White privilege.”

“A white man sprayed a racial remarks on my Grandmom’s house last night in south philly referencing white Privileged,” Meek Mill wrote.

Mill, who is currently advocating for prison reform, went on to explain how the racial landscape of his grandmother’s neighborhood has changed. On his latest album, Championships, the rapper explained the daily trauma one experiences growing up in his neighborhood.

“The crazy part is this was a all black neighborhood 20 years ago It was gentrified and now this!!” He wrote. “The funny part is we just bought this house … after its remodeled more blacks coming soon !”

According to The Blast, Mill is filing a police report after discovering the racial term. The incident is the latest in a string of White pride-related vandalism that has occurred in South Philadelphia this month.
