ATLANTA — An Atlanta news anchor wasn’t shocked to be called a racial slur in an email from a viewer but she decided, on air, to have the last word.
“Just another day at the office. Not the first time I’ve been called that word,” CBS46 anchor Sharon Reed wrote on her Facebook page as she posted the email that included two misspellings of the N-word.
The unsigned email from the handle “kathyrae1962” says Reed should be fired for a “race baiting comment” she made during a newscast Tuesday night.
“it’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really???” the email says before going on to say Reed is racist and call her the N-word.
It was not immediately clear what exactly Reed said that prompted the email.
After reading the email aloud, Reed said the viewer mischaracterized her comments. It’s important to talk about race, she said, adding that she and her colleagues decided to have that discussion on air after noting that race had become an issue in the Atlanta mayoral race. The runoff election, held Tuesday, saw a black woman facing off against a white woman.
Reed said she wouldn’t make the same mistake and mischaracterize the email sender’s viewpoint.
“I get it. On Dec. 5, 2017, you think it’s OK to call this journalist a n—–. I don’t,” Reed said. “But I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, Speak for themselves.”
Commenters on Reed’s Facebook page and on the station’s website overwhelmingly supported Reed, saying she was measured in her response and handled the situation with class.

What race was the sender of the email again?
because N-words call themselves nigga all the time.

Demanding that right exclusively like they do based on race is racist.

Here is something to think about :

"The EFF leader also said white people are visitors in the country who have no rights to land.

“We are not calling for the slaughter of white people‚ at least for now … The rightful owners of the land are black people. No white person is a rightful owner of the land here in SA and the whole of the African continent‚” said the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Julius Malema."

So according to Mr "no murder yet", all blacks and whites here in NDN land are visitors and have no right to own the land eh?
