A Confederate statue in Charleston, South Carolina, was vandalized with graffiti Sunday, days after nine people were shot and killed at the city’s historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopalian Church in what was apparently a racially motivated attack. The monument was defaced on the same day Emanuel AME opened for its first service since the shooting.

The words “Black Lives Matter” and “This was the problem #racist” were written on the statue in red spray paint, WCIV, Charleston, reported. The graffiti also lambasted South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Charleston Mayor Joe Riley with the words “Riley and Haley — why defend this evil — This is the root of our evil.”
