MONROE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

Racism and harmony collided at the intersection of Packer Bend and Cane Creek Road in the Packers Bend community of Monroe County.

"I sure hate this for real," said Cecil Stabler who still can't believe it. "We've never had anything like happen before. I don't think it's right."

Authorities believe the graffiti happened sometime overnight Saturday based on witnesses who say they noticed the racist language Sunday morning.

Monroe County road crews washed away the foul language from the road signs, but we're told the unknown author wrote KKK, used the "n" word and signed "Trump 2016."

"I felt mighty bad because we have children in the community," said Dorette Carstarphen.

Not far from Cecil Stabler's home, someone wrote foul language on the playground complex sign, which has since been painted over. Whoever did this didn't just spray paint the road signs, they wrote vulgarities, such as the "n" word on the road. That, too, has been blacked out.

Monroe County sheriff investigators have opened an investigation.

Meanwhile, Wilcox County authorities are also checking out reports of racist graffiti on a building and a sign.

District attorney Michael Jackson said some of the charges may include a federal hate crime depending on the motive and the circumstances. As of now, no one has been arrested.

"You just don't do stuff like this. It's pitiful," said Wilcox County resident Eric Stabler.

Back in Packers Bend, the locals say this is not the norm, highly unusual, and they hope and pray it stops.
