CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accused SiriusXM Patriot 125 host David Webb of “white privilege” during a debate on his radio program on Monday morning.

Webb informed Martin that he is, in fact, black.

 

The discussion began with a debate about the confirmation hearings of President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, William Barr.

They later moved on to the question of racial diversity in cable news. Recently, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called out CBS News for failing to hire any black journalists to cover the 2020 election.

Webb asked Martin for her opinion on the controversy. She said she rejected the idea that there were not enough black people interested in journalism, and noted that many had spoken out on social media about their interest. Martin also agreed with Ocasio-Cortez that it was not acceptable for media outlets to claim there were not enough journalists of color available.

 

To that, Webb responded that he had “31 years” of experience in media, adding: “I’ve seen the coverage, and I’ve also seen it change, generationally … I have not seen the lack of [diversity], I’ve seen, actually growth in it.”

Webb also asked Martin whether Black Entertainment Television (BET) would have to hire a white or Hispanic reporter.

Martin said that was up to BET, but that networks with diverse audiences should have on-air personalities that reflect that diversity, especially with the wide diversity of candidates expected in the Democratic presidential primary in 2020.

Webb argued that qualifications should be the deciding factor. “I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue.”

 

Martin responded: “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…”

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

Martin answered: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.”

Webb replied:

Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped. I’m black … See, you went to white privilege. This is the falsehood in this. You went immediately with an assumption … You’re talking to a black man who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop, rebuilding one of the greatest black stations in America, and went on to work for Fox News, where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work, but yet you come with this assumption and you go to white privilege. That’s actually insulting!

Martin apologized. “My people gave me wrong information.”

Webb, indignant, noted that his family background was diverse. “This is part of the problem with driving the narrative around a construct like white privilege.” While privilege existed, he said, it was not necessarily determined by color.

 

Martin insisted, nevertheless, that white privilege is real.

Yuji is an ungrateful wretch he forgets that its black American civil rights struggles that allowed PPP refugees to flee Forbes Burnham. Prior to 1965 US immigration laws would have rendered migration to the USA as being all but impossible.  

Canada interestingly enough only removed its "whites only" immigration policy in 1962.  You bet the US civil rights struggle and Canada's embarrassment that its immigration policies were Jim Crow which led to this.

And many of you gallop into all sorts of occupations from which you would have been barred, even in NYC.  Yes its the civil rights struggle led by black Americans which opened the doors to women and to non black immigrants.

But you all rush in, lack the manners to thank black Americans and even join whites in stigmatizing them.

And yes white privilege does exist, notwithstanding the ability of many who aren't white male to jump over those barriers.

White people have more white privilege with black people than with white people. For example; A black man would rather spend his entire pay cheque on a white woman than a black woman. Just ask OJ or Kanye if.you think I am wrong.

One cannot say with more clarity the dept of you ignorance than what you wrote above.

And apparently you will do the same for a half white woman than for an Indian one.

You wail that I hit you below the belt but you make these ridiculous statements that force me to show your hypocrisy.

  • You keep saying that the civil rights movement was the reason for the Hart–Celler Act of 1965 that opened the doors to people of color to migrate to the USA. Some will argue that it is a coincidence as it was proposed by 3 white men. No MLK or Blacks involved and it was based on the 1952 'Whom shall we welcome" study commissioned by Truman. 

I don't doubt that the civil rights movement influenced, but to say solely that it was the reason is disingenuous if not deceitful.

If you don't believe what I said then just ask Tiger Woods. He gave half of a billion dollars to a white woman because of white privilege and zero dollars to a black woman.

Prash, that's stereotyping. These rich black men you mentioned were just too stupid. Look what happened to them. Jeff Bezos is not a black man. Look what happened to him?

the point that is to be made is that black men with money do not have many options to maintain that class level except from people already there, white people.

White privileged is not a focus on money they have but the disparity in institutional access and conditions of social justice where where on account of skin color one is treated differentially. 

I am addressing your focus on the stereotype which is easily explained away due to its prejudicial construct.

So if you know that the Civil Rights movement influenced it why your screams?  Prior to that immigration rules into the USA and Canada were explicitly racist.  The Civil Rights movement exposed these facts and led to their removal.

So yes you druggie need to value blacks more than the fact that they have big baigans that entertain you.

And you would rather marry a red woman than an Indian one.  Your point?  You selected who you wanted and now scream when others do otherwise.

I detect that you are jealous that you couldn't get a white woman as you ceaselessly ramble about this.

In the USA only 20% of black men marry white women.  75% of them marry black women.

Tiger Woods is no blacker than are your kids.  His mother is 100% Asian and his father is clearly of mixed ancestry.

Will you be disappointed if your kids dont marry blacks?  It wouldn't surprise me if they end up with whites.

The vast majority of college educated blacks in the USA marry other blacks and socialize with them as well.

I can only wonder why a few score black celebrities are used to determine the attitudes of blacks.
