Mayoral candidate Keisha Lance Bottoms Alex Seitz Wald NBC News

Speaking straight into the camera, Reed had another message for Rae: "I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint".

Reed added that she doesn't think it's OK and instead of saying another word about Rae, made a decision to let the sender's words "speak for themselves".

"On December 5, 2017, you think it's OK to call this journalist a [N-word]", Reed said.

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

Reed red the email live on the air, noting that Kathy Rae had actually misspelled the n-word.

The response came the same day as the mayoral election in Atlanta, where Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood faced off in a tight race that was likely heading to a recount Wednesday morning.

Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed delivered a powerful reply to an email from a viewer that referred to her as a "n***r" and suggested she had been "race baiting" while presenting on her program.

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.

Atlanta news anchor Sharon Reed made it very clear on Tuesday evening: watch what you say to her. "And that'll be the last word". "It's OK for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really?"

"I didn't say that white people couldn't talk about race", Reed says. "A woman by the name of Kathy Rae emailed me and we're going to put that email on the screen and then I'll comment after it". On the other hand, a Bottoms win "would continue a run of African-American mayors that began with Maynard Jackson in the mid-1970s". What she said was not in a teleprompter. Sometimes you have to just be honest with folks at home and respect their intelligence and life experience. "Why sensor that? Especially in a natural, authentic moment like that".

"We do try to keep it real here", she added. "That said, there's too many people getting too comfortable that we're postracial", she says. "But we all have to be responsible for those views".

"But if you do, be fearless".
