Atlanta anchor responds to email calling her a racial slur

Sharon Reed CBS46 anchor blasts viewer for calling her a'n***r

During Atlanta's mayoral election coverage Tuesday (Dec. 6), CBS46 news anchors Ben Swann, Alicia Roberts and Sharon Reed discussed the election's racial dynamics.

The email says Reed should be fired for a "race baiting comment" and says: "It's o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really-?"

Reed also posted a screenshot of the email on her Facebook page, explaining that it wasn't the first time she's been called the N-word.

Instead of an angry response, Reed said she made a decision to let the viewer's words "speak for themselves". "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".

Reed has also commented on the now-viral moment, telling the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she chose 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. It's one we're having tonight because it's one that you are talking about at home and it's one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race. As reported on sites including the Root, she was discussing the racial dynamics in the Atlanta mayor race when Kathy Rae made a decision to reach out. "And that'll be the last word". I don't, ' Reed said.

Speaking straight into the camera, Reed had another message for Rae: "I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint".

"That's why, behind the scenes, my colleagues and I - white and black - we decided, hey let's go for it". "And then there is the belief that you have to keep it real. Why sensor that? Especially in a natural, authentic moment like that".

And Twitter was loving Reed's response. "But we all have to be responsible for those views".

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.

"But if you do, be fearless".
