“Oh you’re a successful radio host what works at Fox. You must be using your white privilege bc black men cannot be successful.”
Why are black racist against themselves?
During a guest radio appearance, a CNN legal analyst said the show’s host, who is black, has benefited from “white privilege.”
The segment aired Tuesday during a SiriusXM show hosted by David Webb, who is also host FOX Nation’s Reality Check. His guest during the segment was Areva Martin, a civil rights attorney and CNN legal analyst.
According to a clip posted to Twitter, Webb details his rise in the media, saying he always saw his qualifications as a more important issue than his color.
“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.”
“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.”
On FOX News Channel’s FOX & Friends on Wednesday, Webb criticized Martin for advancing “a false narrative” and for an apology that “throws her team under the bus.”
“There is no such thing as white privilege,” Webb said on FOX & Friends. “There is earned privilege in life that you work for.”
