    CNN analyst and civil rights attorney Areva Martin...
    [​IMG]

    was a SiriusXM on-air guest of David Webb....
    [​IMG]

    In a short comment, Webb details his rise in the media, saying he always saw his qualifications as a more important issue than his color. Martin jumped in to say, "Well, David, 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 Martin.

    When Webb asks how he benefits, Martin said it's "by virtue of being a white male."

    Say whaaaa? "Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black," said Webb.

    Webb then scolds Martin for making the assumption, going through his qualifications ultimately leading him to Fox News "where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work."

    "Yet, you come with this assumption, and you go to white privilege. That’s actually insulting," Webb said.

    Martin apologized, noting "my people gave me wrong information."

    This is fascinating. Her "people"? Where did they get their information? It isn't that hard to google a fella's picture. My guess is they saw he worked for Fox and figured he couldn't be black. And even if he had been white, why the assumption that white privilege was involved? That privilege is the only reason whitey advances in his career? And what in insult to Webb. Identity politics are often made-up bullshit.

    Every idiots actions dont have to be marginalized trivialized or rationalized by the acknowledgement of another. Let them stand on their own.
