Oops! CNN legal analyst accuses radio host, who’s black, of ‘white privilege’

5 (100%) 1 vote

Yesterday, on SiriusXM Patriot radio’s David Webb Show, Webb was discussing with CNN legal analyst Areva Martin, who’s black, a recent controversy brought up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over CBS failing to hire any black journalists to cover the 2020 election.

Martin said she agreed with Ocasio-Cortez and that it was unacceptable for media outlets to claim that there aren’t enough journalists of color available.

Webb disagreed. He said he has 31 years of experience in the media, and that “I’ve also seen it change, generationally.… I have not seen the lack of [diversity], I’ve seen, actually growth in it.” He then asked Martin if she thought Black Entertainment Television (BET) should be forced to hire a white or Hispanic reporter. Martin responded by saying it would be up to BET.

Webb then said people should be hired based on their qualifications and not the color of their skin, and that “I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue.”

Martin responded by playing the Left’s race card, accusing Webb of “white privilege”:

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

The only problem is this: David Webb is even blacker than Areva Martin, as you can see in their pics below.

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

Martin: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.”

Webb: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped. I’m black.”

Martin apologized by throwing her “people” under the bus, claiming that they had given her “the wrong information” about Webb.

To Fox News, Webb said (1:00 mark):

“She [Areva Martin] immediately defaulted to an attack, which is a false narrative. There is no such thing as white privilege. There’s earned privilege in life that you worked for. There are those who may have more privilege that they exert on others in the form of influence. But this is about more than what she said and the embarassment — and she should be — but the default to this easy, false narrative….

But being on Patriot radio with me, and being a conservative talk station, well, I must have been white was in her head.”

  1. Dumbass, that’s why she works full time for CNN.

     
  2. Google is tough…

     
  3. Clearly, one must pass a negative IQ test to get work at CNN.

    What a maroon!
    Just watched FiringLine2 — with Stacey Abrams, who lost her bid to become Georgia’s first ever female governor — to a White Republican guy, adjectives which have described Georgia’s governors since, well, forever.

    However, she REFUSED to concede the victory to the guy! Said it wasn’t an honest victory. Said there were abuses and such against “Democrat” (read: Black) voters, and she may sue the state over it. Turn half the population (by color AND party) against the elected governor, his administration, and their state congress. Hmmm, sound familiar? Foment dissidence and revolution.

    OMG. The host (a small, white, fairly liberal woman) pressed her on what she thought about voting fairness. Turns out the Abrams thinks requiring people to prove CITIZENSHIP should be thrown out… they should only be required to prove they live in their voting district. Further, she thinks that 16-year olds should be allowed to vote on school board member elections?!? Seriously?

    There is racism-based dementia out there; it’s part of the nutty attack on DJT. This lady is otherwise a quite-capable and intelligent sounding woman. I was surprised to hear this follow up on her regarding her lost election effort… just sad that certain folks got to her and planted such thoughts into her psyche. Fortunately, she didn’t pull the feminist card out… or anything about LGBTQ rights. So far. I hope she does a 180 and congrats the winner and resolves to give a better fight next time, and give her state something positive to go on.

     
  5. Hoisted upon her own petard, and deservedly so! I suppose these nutcases will persist until reality strikes in a larger way, say as Civil War 2.

     
  6. So—Areva Dirrci blames someone else for her own cognitive dissonance! Isn’t this what leftists always do, in one way or another?

    CNN: It’s not a news channel—IT’S A TOTAL JOKE. (And when life gives you a Lemon, put him on CNN!)

    This is somewhat related… the incredible intolerance of the progies and the way they (and the MSM) are now denigrating anyone and anything supporting traditional moral values — as if they were to be *despised* for it?

    It’s utterly amazing. I’ve seen scathing reports on Mrs. Pence taking a part-time teaching spot at a Christian academy. At first, everything they reported was what I’d call WONDERFUL. All about the school condemning any sort of devious sexual behavior — teaching at school or practiced by its teachers. I think it was on FB (I follow Christian news) or maybe in an MSN report.

    But then the reporter’s true colors showed through, as they took Mrs. Pence and the school to task for each of their upheld values as if they were some sort of monster because they went against the LGBTQ religion and ideology. Truly banal. Gauche. Insipid. Disgusting. Pathetic.

    And I see similar sorts of attacks elsewhere, against prominent Christian leaders and institutions, EVEN on their own websites and FB pages. The goobers on Satan’s side have no sense of decorum, nor of staying among their own kind anymore… they actually think God’s People will change their minds, I suppose, by hearing such laughable arguments and outright lies.

    Unfortunately, I’m seeing many (typically young Christians, mostly from overseas, many from 3rd-world countries) apparently jumping on the bandwagon and declaring replacement theologies copacetic with such non-sense. Which leads to the weaker minded here at home going through the same types of mental gyrations of questioning what they should KNOW to be true.

    (Matt 18:6 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.)

    It’s getting worrisome now that the same types in charge of the U.S. House are putting forth similar sound bytes of non-sense and attracting a following of similarly limp-minded folks. And of course, Schumer does his best to lead the U.S. Senate minority (and public) astray in similar fashion. :'(

    It’s straight out of the Bible (Sermon on the Mount, Matt 5):
    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

     
  9. David Webb is a true American patriot, whose example should be followed by those Americans who fail to appreciate that they live in the land of the free.

     
  10. He should have let her have it with some “Yo Mama” jokes!
