  1. Why is this a story? Most black people in the media get this type of email every day.

    • It’s a story because she chose to address it on-air. And good for her. We are living in a time when racists are feeling empowered. I applaud any effort to expose and shame these disgusting people. And why wouldn’t you?

  2. No. Stop it. You’re just wanting attention…no one would have known about this had you not said something..attention whore.
