A Michigan official (click here) that manages tax foreclosed homes for the county where Flint sits has resigned after an audio recording of him blaming the city’s water problems on "n---ers (who) don't pay their bills" surfaced online.
Phil Stair, who was a sales manager at the Genesee County Land Bank, was recorded using racial slurs by local water activist Chelsea Lyons who later posted the recordings to the website Truth Against the Machine.
In the recording, Stair is heard saying "Flint has the same problems as Detroit, f--ing n---ers don't pay their bills, believe me, I deal with them,” he said....
They must have been abused as children. They don't get it and the only thing they want is someone to blame their frustration with a failed value system.
It is amazing people in this country still have such strong hate toward people they never met and don't know. Bigotry is convenient. I hope Phil's loss of his job will be a lesson to others that hate nameless, faceless peole of color.
