Atlanta news anchor responds on-air to being called racial slur

Atlanta news anchor responds on-air to being called racial slur Former Channel 19 Anchor Sharon Reed Responds to Atlanta Viewer Who Called Her N-Word

Sharon Reed, the CBS46 evening anchor, called out a viewer Tuesday night during the 9 p.m. Peachtree TV newscast who had called her the N-word in an email by repeating the epithet in full on air. According to Reed, she repeatedly wrote "Niger", which is a country in Western Africa. Kathyrae192 wrote. "you are what I call a N****r not a black person. you are what's wrong with the world". No. 1: You mischaracterize what I said. Norwood, who said she planned to request the recount but who was trailing Bottoms, would be the city's first white mayor in over four decades. Quite the contrary, we think that race is an authentic discussion to have. "It's one we're having tonight because it's one that many of you are talking about at home". "It's o.k. (sic) for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites. really???"

"So I won't mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae", she continued. "I get it. On Dec. 5, 2017, you think it's okay to call this journalist a 'n--'", she said, the slur going uncensored. But instead, I will let your words Kathy Rae speak for themselves. "And that will be the last word".

She went on to explain you can't argue by mischaracterizing the other side's viewpoint.

Sharon Reed, CBS 46 anchor in Atlanta, was discussing the racial dynamics that clearly affected the Atlanta mayoral election between Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms and Councilwoman Mary Norwood. "And then there is the belief that you have to keep it real".

This is pretty big news for fans of classic and modern Shazam since Freddy has always been a vital part of the character's mythos. It would be interesting to see how the standalone origin film will set out an arc for Dylan's future Captain Marvel, Jr.

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. She used it multiple times.

Folks including rapper Killer Mike and comedian W. Kamau Bell praised Reed for getting the racist viewer all the way together in such a poised manner.

Reed said the response has been "nice" and acknowledged that while everyone can have their own and differing opinions, they must be responsible for them, too.

She notes that she also responded to Kathie Rae's email personally, reiterating her on-air comment and to tell her she made the show.
