But she got the last word

During a news segment on Tuesday night before the race was called, WGCL-TV journalist Sharon Reed addressed a viewer, Kathy Rae, who sent an email criticizing the anchor's comments on how race played a role in the election. Bottoms, who was announced as the victor Tuesday evening with less one percentage point of a lead, is black, and Norwood is white. Bottoms celebrated her win, but Norwood called for a recount.

Sharon Reed, a presenter on Atlanta station CBS, confronted a female viewer who had sent a racially abusive email into the station.

You need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight.it's o.k 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 [sic].

With the utmost professionalism, Reed debunked the original claim that she and her team, whose races range from white and Black, were somehow race-baiting.

Rather than taking the abuse lying down, Reed chose to call Kathy Rae out live on the air, delivering a scathing response right down the barrel of the camera. No. 1: You mischaracterize what I said. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it's okay to call this journalist a nigger. It's one we're having tonight because you are talking about it at home. "It has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race".

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".

She cautioned against mischaracterizing other people's words. "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". But instead, I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. "And that'll be the last word".
