CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses Sirius XM radio host David Webb of having “white privilege,” despite the fact that Webb is black!

The below image of two people is taken from this link:




The person on the left is Sirius XM radio host David Webb.

The person on the right is CNN Legal Analyst Areva Martin.

Here’s a transcript from a recent conversation between the two of them:

David Webb: “Shouldn’t their requirement, their primary requirement, regardless of ethnicity, regardless of network, be that they are capable of covering politics? For instance, if you’re going to cover political campaigns, sports may not be the most qualified background. And that brings to the point of if people want to get into these fields regardless of color, 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.”

Areva Martin: “Well David, you know that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege and things that you have the privilege of doing that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”

David Webb: “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

Areva Martin: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege, which is a whole long conversation I don’t have time to get into.”

I’d be curious to hear Martin’s explanation for why she thinks it’s not possible for a black person to achieve the things that Webb has achieved.

Martin has just unintentionally presented us with what is – I think – the best argument against the concept of “white privilege” that I have ever heard.
