News Anchor Responds To Viewer's Racist Email

"On December 5, 2017, you think it's okay to call this journalist a n****r. I don't. I could clapback and say a few things to you, but instead I'll let your words speak for themselves".

Sharon Reed, who works for CBS 46 in Atlanta, said during the broadcast that a woman named Kathy Rae mischaracterized something she had said in a previous broadcast and wrote her an angry e-mail. "We keep it real here". She used it multiple times.

So, yea, Sharon Reed of CBS46 News in Atlanta is pretty incredible!

"Race was woven all through the campaign and plenty of folks here were talking about it", she said.
