Charleston, South Carolina police are trying to find the source of racist, sexist and anti-gay graffiti on public buildings including a library, Mic reports.
The Hurd St. Andrews Regional Library was named after its former manager, Cynthia Hurd, who was killed by white supremacist Dylann Roof among nine others at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 2015.
“Go to hell black women,” graffiti on the library read, according to WCIV. “F*ck crackers. F*ck da police.”
“F*ck yall white devil,” was found sprayed on a shed at the local aquatic center.
It’s unclear if the incidents are related, and no suspects have been announced.
“There’s no place for this sort of deplorable act in our community,” Charleston County Councilman Vic Rawl told the Post and Courier. “Our libraries are places of education and growth for children, and we’ll assist law enforcement in any way possible.”
Hurd was described as “a tireless servant of the community,” by the Charleston Public Library after she was killed. Its 16 branches closed in her honor the day after her murder.
Roof was sentenced to death in January.
