“things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of”
David Webb is a black, conservative commentator and talk radio host. You may recognize him from his frequent appearances on FOX News over the years.
During his radio show this week, he had on CNN legal analyst Areva Martin as a guest, who apparently has never seen a photo of Webb.
Brian Flood reports at FOX News:
CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black
It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday.
Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news.
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said.
The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job.
“I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,” Webb said.
“That’s a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” said Martin – who also hosts CBS’ “Face the Truth.”
A dumbfounded Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”
Martin responded, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.”
Webb did not let Martin off the hook for this. He went on to berate her for immediately going to race and for making assumptions. To her credit, Martin apologized.
