Wednesday Mount Olive Primitive Baptist Church became the third predominately black church in Wakulla County, Florida to be vandalized this week with “KKK” spray painted on it.
Wakulla County NAACP Organizing Committee President Anginita Rosier said the racially charged vandalism has shocked the community, both white and black.
“The whole community is in shock right now that we still have these things occurring,” she said as a member of the church painted over the letters. But the unity of the community has been reassuring.
“If there’s a positive out of this negative behavior it’s really bound the citizens of this county together,” Rosier said. “It’s affected everyone to the point that everyone is anxious to see someone held accountable for these crimes.”
The FBI, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office are investigating.
