"When arguing with someone, you have to be careful not to miscategorize their viewpoint, so I won't miscategorize your viewpoint", Reed continued. But instead, I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, stand for themselves. I get it. On 5 December, 2017, you think it's OK to call this journalist a 'n--.' I don't. "I don't, but I could clap back and say a few things to you".

During a news segment on Tuesday night before the race was called, WGCL-TV journalist Sharon Reed addressed a viewer, Kathy Rae, who sent an email criticizing the anchor's comments on how race played a role in the election.

The race between Independent Mary Norwood and Democrat Keisha Lance Bottoms was too close to call, CNN reported.

Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed delivered a powerful reply to an email from a viewer that referred to her as a "n***r" and suggested she had been "race baiting" while presenting on her program. "I think it's fair for people to see what she wrote".

The OSCE has deployed 600 unarmed monitors in Ukraine to investigate and deter ceasefire violations, but they often come under fire from the warring factions.

"I would say to Kathy, a couple of things".

"You need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight", the email began. "And that will be the last word".

Some praised her "classy" response, while others seized the opportunity to turn her reaction into a meme, which acknowledges the issues men and women of color deal with every day in a world full of Kathy Rae's. It's o.k for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites. "It's not the first, second, third, or hundredth - voicemails, emails - not necessarily to my face [but] over the phone", she says. The [n-word] exists. Racists exist. "That said, there's too many people getting too comfortable that we're postracial", she says. That said, I really do believe that everyone is entitled to an opinion and we definitely put opposing views on the air all the time at CBS 46. Police also told the Daily News in 2002 that Reed, then 30, "admitted to us that she was responsible for the harassment and the threats" directed at Taylor. After opening the floor for viewers to express their opinions, Kathy Rae jumped at the opportunity but obviously didn't think it through.

"But if you do, be fearless".
