Atlanta TV anchor responds on air to a woman who called her a racial epithet

"You need to be fired for the race-baiting comment you made tonight", Reed said, reading the email from Kathy Rae, which was displayed on the newscast. Not a black person. You are a racist ni**r. You are what's wrong with the world, " the email read, the slur spelled wrong. She then defended her own comments by saying she "never" said white people couldn't talk about race, before giving Kathy Rae a pointed rebuke for her remarks, with the apparent backing of her colleagues. "Number One: You mischaracterized what I said".

"I didn't say that white people couldn't talk about race", Reed said during the segment. "Quite the contrary, we think that race is an authentic discussion to have".
