Areva Martin, who describes herself as an ‘advocate, commentator, author, TV host and producer’ was speaking on David Webb’s Sirius XM radio program about experience being more important than race when it comes to landing a job role.
However the co-host of Face the Truth on CBS and CNN Legal Analyst seemingly made the mistake of assuming the presenter’s race when he claimed he had never regarded his race as a barrier when obtaining work.
Areva Martin told David Webb on his Sirius XM radio program Tuesday that he has ‘white privilege’. Martin said she was given the wrong information and apologized to Webb
‘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 on his Patriot show.
It led Martin to respond with a statement that suggested she believed Webb was Caucasian.
‘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,’ she replied.
It emerged she had the wrong idea when Webb probed further into her thinking.
‘How do I have the privilege of white privilege?’ he questioned her. To which she hit back. ‘David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.’
‘You see, you went to white privilege; this is the falsehood in this,’ Webb hit back. ‘You went immediately with an assumption. Your people, obviously, or you didn’t look.
‘Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.’
Posting images of himself alongside white men, he wrote: ‘Just two guys showing their #WhitePrivelege.’
Well, because this happened, I guess we don’t need to worry about white privilege any more, right friendo?
“white privilege” is a horrible, awful, racist concept…the idea that if you are white…your opinion does not count! You notice the condescending, awful attitude the host had when she thought guest was white….she changed her tone because of learning skin color. RACISM! In it’s worst form.
Instead of denouncing the racism, you worry that your racist ideas can be kept alive. that makes you an awful racist as well!
Content of character, quality of ideas, not skin color, should determine how reasonable debate is conducted.
Will you apologize for your overt racism?
It was so pathetic to listen to her try to throw her staff under the bus. She states that her staff told her that Webb was a white man. With that, in her small mind, she assumed that his success was due to his race. When she was “woke” to the fact that he was a successful black male, she was so apologetic.
Interesting to see her display her racial bias in public.
Nope, try again, Kevin! That’s not a definition of “white privilge” and you know it.
Sure it is. “White Privilege” is meant to discount, demean, and dismiss someone’s speech simply because of race.
It is awful racism and you advocate it.
This was such a crystal clear case of a liberal caught in her disgusting racism!
What is worse you still define the overtly racist concept!
Why can’t quality of ideas and content of character be the determining element, vs. skin color?
What are you liberals drinking these days?
