This News Anchor Responded to a Racial Slur in the Best Way

After a viewer sent her an email in which they attempted to call her the n-word (you’ll see what I mean by “attempted” in a second), CBS Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed responded on the air during a Tuesday night broadcast.

Here’s the email that was sent to Reed by the racist moron:

After Reed read the email during the broadcast, she said that it “mischaracterized” her positions on race and elaborate with, “quite the contrary, we think that race is an authentic discussion to have.”

She continued to say,

“I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint. So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it’s okay to call this journalist a nigger. 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.”

People all over the internet have provided support for Reed and lauded her response.

Let this be a lesson to all the White supremacists out there: you send racist shit to a news anchor, she’ll wreck you on air for all the world to see.
