Atlanta news anchor, Sharon Reed, calmly yet deliberately went OFF on a viewer this week for blatantly calling her a n*gger.
Following conversation over the mayoral race and the victory of Black Democrat, Keisha Bottoms, and White Independent, Mary Norwood, one viewer thought she could get away with calling out Reed for having an “race bating” thoughts on the election.
What viewer, Kathy Rae, didn’t know, however, is that Sharon was going to call her out on live television for making such ignorant comments.
Reed first broke down the fact that in the message, Rae completely butchered the offensive word; spelling it with just one g — “niger.” Sharon then went on to address the comments made prior to the finally tally.
“I didn’t say white people couldn’t talk about race. Quite the contrary, we think that race is an authentic discussion to have. It’s one that we’re having tonight because it’s one that you are talking about at home and it’s one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor’s race,” she said. “And that’s why, behind the scenes, my colleagues and I, white and black, we decided, hey, let’s go for it. Because we do try to keep it real here and I think we do a very good job of it.”
She continued, “So I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint, so I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On Dec. 5, 2017, you think it’s OK to call this journalist a nigger. I don’t. But I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. And that’ll be the last word.”
After the clip was posted on Facebook, Sharon received comments from dozens of fans, and even celebrities, including Killer Mike. “Please watch: This is a Teaching moment,” Mike tweeted. “Kathy Rae earned an education. #TheNWord #Nigger.”
Serena Williams Almost Died During Child Birth – 3 Shocking Details Behind Tennis Pro’s Complications
Serena Williams gave birth to a healthy baby girl on September 1, 2017 and is now a happy mother to a perfect bundle of joy. But what fans didn’t know was that the tennis superstar almost died during child birth.
In an op-ed piece for CNN, the mother of one opened up about complications she had while delivering her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Here are three shocking details the athlete is now unveiling.
1. According to Williams, she had an emergency C-section after the baby’s heart rate dropped dramatically during contractions. “It began with a pulmonary embolism, which is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs becomes blocked by a blood clot,” Williams wrote. “This sparked a slew of health complications that I am lucky to have survived.”
2. “My C-section wound popped open due to the intense coughing I endured as a result of the embolism. I returned to surgery, where the doctors found a large hematoma, a swelling of clotted blood, in my abdomen. And then I returned to the operating room for a procedure that prevents clots from traveling to my lungs.”
3. When Serena “finally made it home to my family, I had to spend the first six weeks of motherhood in bed.”
In the article posted on CNN’s website, Williams opened up about studies that prove “Black women in the United States are over three times more likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes.”
