This Atlanta news anchor is NOT THE ONE...and one racist white viewer had to learn that lesson the hard way.
It all started when Atlanta’s CBS anchors Ben Swann, Alicia Roberts and Sharon Reed thought it would be good journalism to discuss the racial dynamics involved in the city's mayoral election between a Black woman, Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms, and a white woman, Councilwoman Mary Norwood.
GRANTED, THIS TOPIC IS IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY SINCE ATLANTA IS CALLED CHOCOLATE CITY!!!
But the audacity to have this conversation pissed off one viewer Kathy Rae--who clearly is a Trump supporter and illiterate as hell. So she sent the following email.
“You need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight. It’s okay for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites…Really, you are what I call a N***r not a black person. you are a racist N***r. you are what’s wrong with the world.”
Yeah. She tried it.
But don't you worry...cause Reed got Ms. Rae all the way together. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!
Take a look at this amazingness right here:
“I’m going to hold it, because I think there’s some confusion behind the scenes,” Reed responded, before explaining that she never said white people couldn't talk about racial issues.
"I would say to Kathy, a couple of things. No. 1: You mischaracterize what I said. I didn’t say that white people couldn’t talk about race. Quite the contrary. We think that race is an authentic discussion to have," Reed continued. "It’s one we’re having tonight because it’s one that many of you are talking about at home. And it’s one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor’s race."
She added that she would take the high road rather than respond with insults. (She's better than us!)
“So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae,” she continued. “I get it. On Dec. 5, 2017, you think it’s OK to call this journalist a n-----. I don’t. But I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. And that'll be the last word.
This is so perfect, it's beyond words.
And Black Twitter agrees:
Even more petty?
Reed posted a screenshot of the woman's email on her Facebook account!
We CANNOT imagine how messy Kathy's inbox is this morning!!!
FAM: How do you think Sharon handled herself on-air? Weigh in...
