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

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.”

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

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… Read more »

Did you also read the article about a mayoral election at a church in Georgia where only “Black Media” were allowed?

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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