Black Radio Host David Webb Told to Check His 'White Privilege'

CNN's doing a real bang-up job with shaking that 'fake news' label. One of their analysts, Areva Martin, just unwittingly told Sirius/XM radio host David Webb to check his “white privilege” during a discussion on race.

Such an insightful and intelligent remark by Ms. Martin, who apparently didn't realize that Webb is actually BLACK.

The incident occurred during a debate on whether race or qualifications should be an issue when hiring people for certain jobs.

After Webb said that expertise and experience are what matter, Martin interjected: “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.”

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

“David… by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.” Martin answered before Webb cut her off: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”
