But instead, I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, stand for themselves.

Before the email was shown on screen, Ms Reed said, "a woman by the name of Kathy Rae emailed me".

After tackling the topic of Rae's post, Reed responded to the language, stating that though Rae had mischaracterized Reed's perspective, the journalist would not mischaracterize Rae's words.

After showing Rae's email, Reed goes on to list everything that was wrong with the email. She explained that she believes discussions on race are important and that it's an issue that had entered the mayor's race.

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.

"But I could clap back and say a few things to you", Reed added. "And that will be the last word". It's o.k for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really???

Atlanta voted yesterday for its mayor, deciding between Keisha Lance Bottoms, an African-American candidate, and Mary Norwood, who is white, in a contest that appears to hang on roughly 750 votes and is headed for a recount. I didn't say white people couldn't talk about race, on the contrary, we think race is an authentic discussion to have... Because we do try to keep it real here and I think we do a very good job of it.

Reed told Atlanta Black Star it was timing that led her to respond the way she did - right then and there during election night. She also called the journalist the N-word, although she somehow managed to misspell it.

Kathie Rae didn't want Reed talking about race, but Reed wasn't backing down.

"When arguing with somebody you have to be careful not to mischaracterise their viewpoint, so I won't mischaracterise your view either, Kathy Rae". NBC10 hired Reed in December 1999, where she worked the station's evening newscasts up until 2002. "That said, there's too many people getting too comfortable that we're postracial", she says.

Several social media users commended Reed on the way she handled the email. You can see Reed's entire reply in the video below.
