CNN's Areva Martin Accuses Radio Host David Webb Of Having "White Privilege"; Webb: "I'm Black"


CNN analyst Areva Martin accused conservative radio host David Webb of having "white privilege" on the Monday edition of his SiriusXM program. David Webb is a black man.

Here's the exchange, via Itay Hod at The Wrap:

After Webb said that expertise and experience are what matter, Martin interjected: “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.”

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

“David… by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.” Martin answered before Webb cut her off: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black.”
