Graffiti sprayed on a brick wall at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Gardens does not appear racist, Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown said.
The wall was vandalized Sunday night. On Monday morning, cleaning crews removed the spray paint and some posters that highlighted Dr. King’s quotes, according to a Raleigh police news release.
The statue of Dr. King at the site and the gardens were not damaged, WRAL reported.
