CNN Analyst Accuses Black Man of Having ‘White Privilege’
0

CNN legal analyst Areva Martin appeared on David Webb’s radio program earlier today. During the interview, Martin accused Webb of benefiting from “white privilege.” Martin was unaware that Webb is actually black, not white.

The two were discussing Webb’s past employment experiences when Martin made the accusation. Webb said he never considered the color of his skin to be an issue when applying for a job, and only considered his qualifications. In response, Martin said Webb was fortunate to have benefited from white privilege.

Webb was clearly stunned by the comment, and asked Martin, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Martin responded, saying, “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.” Webb shot back, “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”

Martin apologized for her comments, and bizarrely blamed her staff for the mistake. However, Webb wasn’t just concerned over the fact that she mislabeled his race. He called her mistake insulting, but also said the term itself was insulting. Webb, a conservative, went on to criticize Martin’s political ideology and the concept of white privilege.

David Webb is an accomplished radio personality, with over 25 years of experience in the broadcasting world. He is also a contributor to Fox News and several other outlets. Areva Martin is an attorney and author. In addition to providing legal analysis for CNN, Martin also hosts CBS’ Face the Truth.
