Watch Atlanta Anchor Sharon Reed Demolish Viewer Who Called Her N-Word

Watch Atlanta Anchor Sharon Reed Demolish Viewer Who Called Her N-Word”

Since taking office, President Trump's rhetoric gives some people the newly found confidence to publicly say things that they otherwise may have kept private, like CBS viewer Kathy Rae. The conversation came amid discussion about the contested Atlanta mayoral race, in which an African-American candidate faced a white candidate.

In responding to the woman, Reed clarified that she had not said white people can not talk about race, but in fact that "race is an authentic discussion to have". You are what I call a N***r not a black person. She then defended her own comments by saying she "never" said white people couldn't talk about race, before giving Kathy Rae a pointed rebuke for her remarks, with the apparent backing of her colleagues. "That said, if you're going to write me using that word, I don't think it's appropriate for me to censor it for viewers". "It's o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites...really??" But instead, I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, stand for themselves. "I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it's okay to call this journalist a n****r. It's also worth noting that Bottoms was the default Democrat in the nonpartisan race and Norwood was a closet Republican".

Reed chose to first display the content of the email on the big screen before she had a chance to react to it. "And that will be the last word".

Kathyrae1962 told Reed she should be fired after making a "race baiting comment" on air while she and her co-workers were discussing the Atlanta mayor's race. It's one we're having tonight because you are talking about it at home. It's one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race.

"A simple look at the electoral map makes it clear: The northern, whiter parts of Atlanta voted Norwood; the southern, blacker parts of Atlanta voted for Lance Bottoms. Right? Because we do try to keep it real here and I think we do a good job of it".
