A property manager in Vacaville is facing accusations of racial discrimination.

Delmario Evans says complaints against him have piled up because of the color of his skin.

"They are racists and bigots," Evans said of the management at the Lincoln Corner Apartments. "She had a confederate flag in the window. I am being constantly threatened with evictions."

No flag was displayed in the window Monday but another renter, who refused to be identified, said the flag was a fixture just a few months ago.

Housing at Lincoln Corner is for low income residents, those who receive section 8. It's also supposed to be in compliance with the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits "any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation or discrimination."

FOX40 spoke with the AWI Management Corporation Vice President Michael Burke. Burke says the property they manage, Lincoln Corner in Vacaville is meant to allow everyone the chance for affordable housing.

Burke added the property manager admitted her son lived with her and had the confederate flag in the window. According to Burke, the son moved out and the flag was removed in June of 2014.
