Here’s reason number 592,749 why identity politics are a really bad idea
CNN’s analyst Areva Martin accused David Webb of benefitting from “white privilege” because of his views on race to which Mr. Webb responded that he’s black.
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m 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.”
The Fox Nation host then explained that he was actually black.
“I stand corrected,” Martin said.
Webb scolded Martin for running with an “assumption” and she then blamed her team for providing inaccurate information. More
White privilege is now a tool to explain away personal success and alleviate the guilt of personal failure. There is nothing more racist than assuming someone is white based on their voice.
This just further proves what CNN’s critics say: it’s “journalists” are extremely lazy and sloppy when it comes to doing research, but they’re very quick to smear on misinformation. We don’t call them “very fake news” for nothing.
The Left says white privelage is so obvious, if that were true, why was it so hard for this CNN analyst to not know David Webb was black? Shouldn’t his lack of privelage been obvious?https://t.co/8ShD3RjnZH
