Germany's only black MP reported finding "bullet holes" in the windows of his constituency office Wednesday, adding to fears that the country's politicians are facing increasing levels of intimidation and violence.

Karamba Diaby, a lawmaker for the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), posted about the attack on Twitter, saying police and security services were investigating. He attached a photo showing three impact points on a pane of glass.

"One window with my face on it has several bullet holes," he said.

Citing police sources, news site Spiegel Online reported that the projectiles did not penetrate the second pane in the double-glazed window.

Investigators believe the attackers may have used an "airsoft" gun firing small plastic pellets, usually used for wargames similar to paintball.

Foreign minister and party colleague Heiko Maas tweeted that the suspected attack was "unbelievable, disgusting and cowardly".

"We will continue standing by your side for a free, tolerant and diverse democracy," he added.

No harm done, just a window and an airsoft gun.

It would only be racist if his race was the reason for wanting to shoot, which from the context it seems impossible to speculate.

It would be just as likely a stunt to improve his profile by stacking up victim points.

Regardless of motivation, this kind of stuff still isn't acceptable.
Can we just leave airsoft guns to airsoft games please and let an MP do their job.
