"You are what's wrong with the world".

Sharon Reed is an anchor for CBS Atlanta, and on Tuesday she was speaking on the air about the city's mayoral election with her colleagues Ben Swann and Alicia Roberts. According to Reed, she repeatedly wrote "Niger", which is a country in Western Africa.

"I could clap back and say a few things to you". "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".

"I didn't say that white people couldn't talk about race", Reed says.

"During the broadcast, a viewer named Kathy Rae sent an email to Reed attacking her race, calling her the 'n-word".

"It's one we're having tonight because it's one that you are talking about at home", Reed continued, "and it's one that has clearly entered the Atlanta mayor's race". And that's why, behind the scenes, my colleagues and I -White and Black- we chose to let's go for it. "That said, there's too many people getting too comfortable that we're postracial", she says. "I get it. On December 5th, 2017, you think it's OK to call this journalist a n****r". But instead, I will let your works, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves. "And that will be the last word". "You what's wrong with the world". "We keep it real here".

Specifically, they were discussing the part that race was playing in the contest between Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms, who is black, and Councilwoman Mary Norwood, who is white.

Reed told Atlanta Black Star it was timing that led her to respond the way she did - right then and there during election night.

Reed said the response has been "nice" and acknowledged that while everyone can have their own and differing opinions, they must be responsible for them, too.

Reed has also commented on the now-viral moment, telling the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she chose to use the n-word in its entirety in the moment, and that she is "not a fan of the use" of the word in general.

"I'm going to hold it, because I think there's some confusion behind the scenes", Reed began, reading the comment on air and noting she misspelled the N-word. "It's not the first, second, third, or hundredth - voicemails, emails - not necessarily to my face [but] over the phone", she says.

But Reed has no regrets, except not telling her crew to show the full email.
