“Go back to hell, black women,” the graffiti said.
A library in South Carolina named after a victim killed by avowed white supremacist Dylann Roof was one of three locations in the area targeted with racist graffiti.
The graffiti was discovered Monday morning in Charleston’s West Ashley area, where one or more vandals spray painted racist and homophobic phrases, including, “Go back to hell black women.” At the nearby Stephens Aquatic Center, graffiti said “fuck yall white devil,” according to ABC News. It took several hours to remove.

Cynthia Graham Hurd Library was one of the targets. Hurd was killed in 2015 during a bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church by Roof. He also killed Susie Jackson, Rev. Daniel Simmons, Ethel Lance, Tywanza Sanders, the Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Myra Thompson and Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the pastor of the church.
