Genesee County Land Bank Official Resigns After Racial Slur Toward Flint Residents
Phil Stair has officially resigned as the Sales Manager of The Genesee County Land Bank after undercover video surfaced of him using racial slurs concerning Flint residents.
In the video, Stair can be heard saying that the Flint Water Crisis was caused by Flint residents not paying their water bills. In the video he says,
Flint has the same problems as Detroit, F#*king n##gers don't pay their bills, believe me, I deal with them.
He was talking to a reporter from Truth Against The Machine about the current situation in Flint when he made the comments.
After the video surfaced, Stair turned in his resignation letter stating that he felt, "he could not "carry out nor be effective in my position at the Land Bank with the social media recorded of my private opinion on the Flint Water crisis and the insensitive language used."
