Kwadwo was playing for Wurzburger Kicker against Preußen Munster on when a Munster fan begun to abuse him.
However, other fans in the stands refused to join in and begun to chant 'Nazis out' as players from both sides embraced the 23-year-old.
The abuser then proceeded to be ejected from the stadium after other fans alerted security.
Kwadwo is German of Ghanaian descent and made a statement following the game condemning the abuse he received.
He said: "Regrettably, there was an unfortunate incident during our away game at Preußen Munster. I was racially insulted by a single viewer. This just makes me sad.
"I have a different skin colour, but I was born here, in this wonderful country that gave so much and made things possible for me and my family. I am one of you.
"I live here and can live my vocation and passion as a professional player with Wurzburger Kickers.
