    This story cracked me up.

    But it also illustrates a bigger problem ---- the way the left overuses and abuses accusations of things like "white privilege" and "racism" to the point where they are almost making a mockery of these things.

    It also points to a bit of subconscious racism on the part of this CNN legal analyst that she assumed Webb was white because of his success. It apparently didn't occur to her that a black man could be so successful; instead she assumed he was 1) white and 2) benefited from "white privilege". Oops....

    I'm guessing CNN hasn't retracted Areva's claims and knowing CNN are deleting their transcripts archives and editing videos.

    She said she was given the wrong information which means she's blaming it on others which we all know is BS. But let's say that's true, does that mean she inquires about the color of people before conversing with them?

    Yeah. It was pretty funny.

    That said, I had never heard of either of them before this.

    Fox must be really getting desperate for anything to deflect from the Trump Trainwreck to publicize a "story" about these 2 nobodies.

    Much like the inherent racism of affirmative action, they just can't imagine being in the wrong.

    "Ok, Areva, today you'll be talking with David Webb ---- fyi, he's black, so don't pull any of that 'white privilege' crap or you'll be mocked from one end of the internet to the other. Got it?"

    Accusing one of having white privilege, or being an 'ist' or 'phobe' of some sort, is often nothing more than an "acceptable" way of insulting someone, a way to damage them somehow... a way to get leverage during a discussion.

    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.

    It probably depends on how one defines "success".

    There are some that would find these 2 MORONS "successful".

    I would disagree.

    See how that works?

    Hello, AJ. Your characterization of two successful, accomplished black American citizens as "NOBODIES," reminds me of the HATE embraced by large numbers of apparent emotionally troubled, illogical thinking PRO BLACK minded American citizens.

    I guess when you can't defend your people you deflect by insulting your people.

    Apparently.

    I would not be surprised to learn that Diamond and Silk make far more than AJ.

    Desperate deflection, She assumed he was white because of his success and educated way of speaking. And yet WE are the racist ones. I can see why you swooped in to attempt a trollish deflection, but it wont work. This is far to revealing of the true nature of the left, to allow you to attempt dragging it off topic.
