CNN analyst Areva Martin told Fox News’ David Webb that he benefits from so-called “White Privilege” during a radio interview on Tuesday, when he had to inform his colleague that he is black.
The two were in the midst of a debate over what makes some individuals more qualified for certain jobs than others. Webb argued that work experience is more important than skin color.
Webb’s comments immediately triggered Martin, who began to accuse him of benefitting from “White Privilege”.
Webb responded,“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”
Things took a turn as Martin exclaimed, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege”
At this point, it was clear that Areva failed to do her homework as Webb schooled her on the truth, “I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”
