Mount Clemens church sign defaced with racist graffiti

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (WXYZ) - A Mount Clemens church sign has been the subject of racially charged graffiti.

It happened at the Divine Restoration Ministries at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Someone spray painted babies on the brick work of the facility's sign. You can see the graffiti in the picture to the left. We have blurred out the offensive word.

Bishop-Elect James Richard Evans, Sr. tells 7 Action News that he believes the graffiti was done because of the election. The church was used as a polling place in the past.

The church became aware of the graffiti after someone who said they were disgusted by it posted a picture on the online photo sharing service Instagram.

The incident has upset city leaders in Mount Clemens. They say the church is a good neighbor in their community.

The mayor and city commissioners plan to attend a community meeting about the incident. It will be held Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at the church.
