Put on blast! Flint Bank Sales Manager Caught Being Racist By Flint Water Activists
A sales manager at Genesee County Land Bank, Phil Stair, was secretly recorded spewing racist remarks about the city of Flint residents.
Chelsea Lyons, an environmental activist in Flint recorded Philip Stair, the former sales manager of the Land Bank, and put his racist remarks on blast! According to MLive, the “independent journalist” leaked the clip after meeting him at a local bar.
Stair’s remarks are concerning, since he’s the sales manager at a bank that is Flint’s LARGEST property owner. The agency takes over tax-foreclosed properties, carrying out demolitions, rehabilitations and sales in the area.
You can hear him use the racial slur to describe Flint residents on this video uploaded by Truth Against The Machine.
“Flint has the same problems as Detroit — f**ing ni***** don’t pay their bills, believe me, I deal with them.”
Welp! On Monday, executive director of the bank, Michele M. Wildman, told press Stair relieved himself of his duties as sales manager. His former executive manager shared her feeling on the matter.
“I am deeply troubled by [the statements]. The citizens of Flint deserve to have trust in their public officials.”
