US TV anchor confronts racist email from viewer live on air

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

The anchor claimed she actually believes race is an "authentic discussion" to have and explained that in an argument, it's important to not "mischaracterize" a statement. "I don't. I could clapback and say a few things to you, but instead I'll let your words speak for themselves". "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. She then defended her own comments by saying she "never" said white people couldn't talk about race, before giving Kathy Rae a pointed rebuke for her remarks, with the apparent backing of her colleagues.

"On December 5, 2017, you think it's ok to call this journalist a (expletive)", Reed said, using the racial epithet on television herself.

Atlanta now faces a likely recount in the city's mayoral race, which saw a runoff Tuesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said: 'We are very excited for Harry and Meghan . Meghan is giving up her work as an actress and will concentrate on charity work.

"'"(Y) ou need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight (.) (I) t's o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really???. you are a racist Niger", the email stated, misspelling the offending word. "It's one we're having tonight because it's one that many of you are talking about at home. It has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race". "Because we try to keep it real here and I think we do a very good job of it".

"A simple look at the electoral map makes it clear: The northern, whiter parts of Atlanta voted Norwood; the southern, blacker parts of Atlanta voted for Lance Bottoms. And that's the last word".

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".
