But she got the last word

Atlanta TV anchor responds on air to a woman who called her a racial epithet

"So I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint, so I won't mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae", she continued.

"You need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight", the email writer, KathyRae1962 wrote, according to a screenshot Reed posted to Facebook. "You are a racist N*ger (sic). you are what's wrong with the world". "You what's wrong with the world".

"I would say to Kathy a couple of things", Reed begins. CBS46 news anchor Sharon Reed shredded mayo mascot Kathy Rae for calling her the n-word in an email about the station's recent Atlanta mayoral election coverage, a message she awesomely read word-for-word on the air.

"On December 5, 2017, you think it's okay to call this journalist a 'n*****.' I don't". You are what I call a N***r not a black person. I don't. But I could clap back and say a few things to you, but instead I'll let your words, Kathyrae, speak for themselves.

Then, rather than going off on Rae for her comment, Reed ended the discussion with a classy blow.

Apple Pay Cash and person to person payments limits

Nets land Jahlil Okafor in stunning trade with 76ers

Israel strikes Gaza, no injured
Embassies across much of the Middle East and parts of Africa warned American citizens of possible protests following Trump's move. In Palestine, the demonstrations began on Wednesday night, shortly after Trump's speech.

Reed added that she responded to the viewer, who complained that the anchor called her out for misspelling the n-word.

The race between Independent Mary Norwood and Democrat Keisha Lance Bottoms was too close to call, CNN reported. "Number one, you mischaracterize what I said. And that'll be the last word". Atlanta has had black mayors since the 1970s.

Kathie Rae didn't want Reed talking about race, but Reed wasn't backing down. "It's not the first, second, third, or hundredth - voicemails, emails - not necessarily to my face [but] over the phone", she says. "I think it's fair for people to see what she wrote".

Reed has also commented on the now-viral moment, telling the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she made a decision to use the n-word in its entirety in the moment, and that she is "not a fan of the use" of the word in general.

But Reed has no regrets, except not telling her crew to show the full email. "I don't come down on artists and other people who have co-opted it for what they want to use it", Reed said.
