News anchor responds to racist email on air! MUST SEE!

http://thehill.com/homene...-by-viewer

Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed received a racist email and she responds on air to the woman and names her and calls her out with class and dignity. I love how this woman goes after this racist person and does so on live TV.

I don't agree with the lady writing into the anchor and calling her names. It is one thing to be critical but calling racist names is off terms. But go on youtube and you'll see plenty name calling both ways so if you are going to be a political figure or work in media get ready to be called names. Trump gets called a billion times worse and all the time.

What’s interesting is that the ignorant Kathie Rae, complained about race being discussed in that election, but then calls the journalist the ‘n’ word. What an ignorant idiot. She is exactly what’s wrong with America.

Please, please don't err on that side of history. I implore you to show us where Frumpy is called worse, as a CIS white anglo-Saxon male, than a black woman called a nigger. I'm anxious to see where you think Trump is just called something a billion times worse than nigger. You said "all the time", so I'm sure it'd be easy to find a good half dozen examples of something worse than nigger. But if you think they exist, and you said there were billions (I'll let ya stick at millions if need be, because I'm a nice fucking guy). We're ready.

You really sound like Trump when he said, "There are good people and bad people on both sides" when CIS white anglo-Saxon men marched onto a college campus with tiki torches like angry villagers changing racial slurs while sporting their white pullovers and khaki pants, angry at a statue of Robert E. Lee being removed (a statue that Lee's great-great-grandson has said doesn't belong there either).

"But" usually means, "Ignore everything I just said, here's what I really think". So - until we hear otherwise... we know you now.

On another note:

I really thought she was going to correct Kathy's spelling and school her on the fact that Niger is a country in western Africa, whereas she meant to say something entirely different. It's stupid ass people like that who can't even get a racial slur right, yet walk off with "Well you know what I meant". No Kathy, did you did ya mean a country or were you calling a respected local reporter a racial epithet?

It was a classy clap back, though. Maybe the Niger correction would have cheapened it in her eyes, but I would have went for it, just as a sassy period to the whole thing.

It appears that superfur is defending that racist Kathie Rae’s right to call the journalist the ‘n’ word. He defended nazi supporters protesting their right to promote hate speech, so his comments in this thread doesn’t surprise me. He’s revealing his true colors more and more, but I caught on to his transparency a long time ago.

But you said because she’s in the media she should expect to be called names, then you interject trump into it, to downplay the negative effect of Kathie Rae’s racist insult towards the journalist. If someone called another person at their place of employment the ‘n’, chances are they’d be fired.

All racial slurs are bad. It is uncalled for. I said I don't mind criticism of politicians and media people it comes with the territory but the name calling was wrong. It is ok to criticize politicians and the media but do not use racial slurs.

This gets at the crux of our current situation to me: it’s about discernment.

And because the obscuration is worse the more it becomes about protecting our person or group, even behavior that we would instantly correct in our own children suddenly becomes acceptance because, after all, all people fuck up.

People are all sinners, the lord works in mysterious ways, or they are just as bad, in this context, are just defense mechanism for not having to feel so bad about ourselves, our side.

If it’s not biting us in the ass quite frequently, it’s probably not the truth.

This journalist’s reaction is measured and intelligent. It’s the way we should all strive to be, not an entry point for showing how many mistakes she has made in the past (which we all have in abundance), perhaps additionally even throwing in some conspiracies to make her out to be as awful or even worse than this email (irony not intentional).

Remember when parents (I’m not a parent) could tell their children that through incredibly hard work and passion, who knows?, perhaps they could also reach such dizzying heights. Now, of course, before President Barack Obama, maybe many parents didn’t even really believe it themselves if their child wasn’t a white male protestant, but they probably said it anyway because there are a lot of really good people who try to keep their cynicism from their children.

Now, thanks to deeply-rooted insecurity in the face of deeply-rooted insecurity, we can now tell our children that, who knows?, even if you’re a massive narcissist, an asshole, a person who seems almost devoid of empathy, someone who intentionally through his own tragic selfishness is not even very bright, a person who has deeply flawed issues with women and other races, a person who doesn’t believe he has ever really done anything before that would require an apology, a person who only really lets people talk (did you see the “60 Minutes” interview with his Vice President?) when they offer hosannas to the great and wise king, you too might one day represent us all with almost no dignity required.

Of course if you believe, way deep down, like I strongly suspect, perhaps erroneously, that the alternative is just against God, for many reasons, but perhaps the two biggest: abortion and homosexualality, are enough to consider almost any kind of awful as being better, or at least equal, then we will continue, at least to some degree, this vicious cycle that tries to prove everything equal will live on forever in our hearts.

it is the endless double standard... back in 2009 or so someone called obama Hitler and that was deemed racist but the same people said that calling President G. W. Bush, Hitler was fine because he was?
