But she got the last word

But she got the last word

But after a viewer sent her an offensive e-mail Tuesday, she decided enough was enough.

The email read, "you need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight". Really??? You are what I call a N--r not a black person. You are a racist ni**r.

After showing Rae's email, Reed goes on to list everything that was wrong with the email. Responding to the station and Reed's coverage, an emailer identifying herself as Kathy Rae sent Reed a message calling her "a racist N****r". "That said, if you're going to write me using that word, I don't think it's appropriate for me to censor it for viewers".

After sharing the vile email in an on-air graphic, Reed stared directly into the camera and set the record straight, reaffirming that she never suggested white people couldn't talk about race. Quite the contrary. We think that race is an authentic discussion to have. "And then there is the belief that you have to keep it real". Bottoms won, but Norwood has already filed for a recount. "See ya at 11 on CBS46 with the latest results in the Atlanta mayor's race!" On the other hand, a Bottoms win "would continue a run of African-American mayors that began with Maynard Jackson in the mid-1970s". I get it. On 5 December, 2017, you think it's OK to call this journalist a "n****r". But I could clap back and say a few things to you.

Her video has gone viral and has been shared more than 84,000 times in less than 24 hours, with the majority of people applauding Reed's monologue.

It was not immediately clear what exactly Reed said that prompted the email. The racial identities of the mayoral candidates constituted as such. "I don't", Reed said.

'Several' pedestrians hit in Manhattan
Police said the area is safe but to avoid it because of the ongoing collision investigation and traffic congestion. Thursday when a Lincoln Town Car and Ford Explorer collided at Broadway and Liberty Street near Zuccotti Park.

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

Being a black and brown journalist is a tough job, especially now.

"Not the first time I've been called that word", she wrote.

Kathyrae1962 told Reed she "is what's wrong with the world" in an email.

Kathie Rae emailed back, taking issue with Reed's implying she was stupid.

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. "To me, it was an easy decision".
