If you’re tired of the identity politics that folks in the media and those on the left frequently employ, then this is the story for you.
Talk about getting owned.
There hasn’t been such an own of a CNN person since Jim Acosta proved walls work last week.
CNN analyst Areva Martin, who is black, was doing a radio interview with Sirius XM radio host and Fox News Contributor David Webb when she stepped in it but good.
Webb was talking about job qualifications and said that he cares more about work-related experience and knowledge than skin color.
Martin began to talk about “white privilege” and accused Webb of benefitting from it. But there was a small fact of which Martin apparently wasn’t aware.
“That’s a whole ‘nother 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 guest Martin.
Confused, Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”
“David… by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege,” Martin began, when Webb interjected:
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”
She then immediately apologized and said she had been “given the wrong information” by her people about Webb.
Webb then observed that her whole initial condemnation of what he said was then just based on what she perceived his race to be.
Needless to say, people loved it.
Well, radio, but yeah. Spit, choke, classic moment.
