    Police are on the hunt for the person or people who left a note with racial slurs for an African American limo driver and sprayed his vehicle with racist graffiti.

    Investigators say the driver found the note outside his home on the 4600 block of Kendrick Street in the Holmesburg section of the city on Wednesday. They also say the N-word was spray painted on both sides of the man's limo.

    Neighbors say they’re outraged by the incident.

    “I think it’s sick,” said William McLaughlin. “I really do.”

    Stephen Bonaccorsi, another neighbor, says the neighborhood is diverse and that the people there get along for the most part.

    “We have a lot of different races that live around here anyway and there’s never any trouble or sign of trouble or anything like that,” Bonaccorsi said.

    If you have any information on the incident, please call Philadelphia Police.
