It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of white privilege during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news.
Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you shouldve been better prepped. Im black, Webb said.
The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job.
Ive chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that Im qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue, Webb said.
Thats a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color dont have the privilege of, said Martin who also hosts CBS Face the Truth. A dumbfounded Webb asked, How do I have the privilege of white privilege? Martin responded, David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.
The Fox Nation host then explained that he was actually black. I stand corrected, Martin said. Webb scolded Martin for running with an assumption" and she then blamed her team for providing inaccurate information.
Thats actually insulting, Webb said.
It is and I apologize, Martin replied. I was given wrong information.

The idiot Martin still couldn't accept the ultimate responsibility. She blamed her staff.
“Funny, you don’t sound black. You sound so clean and articulate”...Martin
Here lies the problem, sh## comes out of their mouths, before their brain, if there is one is engaged
I have a friend who is gay and he posted a picture on Facebook of him at an event at Trump’s house. One of his FB friends called him “homophobic” for supporting Trump.
Martin is a racist and an idiot, it didn’t work for her this time.
*This* is CNN!
>>>Martin replied. I was given wrong information.<<<
Her Staff advises her about the Ethnicity of the People who interview her? How about their Religion and their Sexuality?
I’m not sure, but that could be Racist.
He talks white
They don’t have to watch anything over there at Fox News, they just know they are all racists.
Their arrogance will be their downfall.
Is it appropriate to say “dumb and dumber”?
THe idiot GOP leader Kevin MCCarthy stripped Steve King of committee assignments for words said in poor taste at worst.
But hes silent about liberal racism. Thats expected.
If you're attributing this to the guest on Webb's show, she didn't say it. It's important to know what she did say, not what she didn't. This is how fake news gets started.
Martin replied. I was given wrong information.
Yeah, I mean what black person has a whitey name like David Webb?????/////
She was surprised he wasnt honky trash.
Should have let it go at “I stand corrected.” but had to blame staff. Anyone want to bet the staff said nothing, but Martin ASSUMED, all on her own, that Webb is white.
I think cosmetic surgery has more to do with it. And put some clothes on, lady. Civilized people don’t leave the house in their skivvies.
Because he works for FOX. Black conservatives are an oxymoron to this black liberal woman.
