The Truth Machine revealed an audio recording of a local Flint official with the Genesse County Land Bank suggesting that the cause of the Flint water crisis were blacks who don’t pay their bills.
The sales manager for the Banks is caught on tape telling reporter Chelsea Lyons in Flint, “Flint has the same problems as Detroit-fucking Ni**ers don’t pay their bills, believe me, I deal with them,” Phil Stair.
Stair did go on to try and clarify: “I don’t want to call them Ni**ers, shit I just went to Myrtle Beach, 24 guys, and I was the only white guy; I got friends, I mean, there’s trash, and there’s people that do this shit. They just don’t pay their bills. Well, Detroit didn’t collect on their bills, so they charged everybody else, but- Flint- Flint had to pay their bill to Detroit.”
The recording of Stair took place over two days and took place after Lyons and another woman met him at a local bar.
Stair is a government employee through the land bank, which is a “non-profit government organization.”
