A CNN analyst called out a Fox News contributor for his ‘white privilege.’

He’s black.

CNN legal analyst Areva Martin thought she was talking to a white man Tuesday while appearing as a guest on David Webb’s SiriusXM radio show.

When Webb, a Fox Nation host and frequent Fox News contributor, said he considered his qualifications more important than his skin color when applying to media jobs, Martin accused him of exercising white privilege.

But there was a problem with that, as Webb quickly pointed out:

“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” he responded. “I’m black.”

People shouldn't be this quick to make judgments about others without fully knowing their backgrounds.

This is obviously not a case of white privilege but it's likely about a privileged viewpoint anyway.

That awkward moment when fox and friends can’t explain why their president has the government shut down so they deflect and make fun.

 

Cause there are no real issues in the world that require attention.

She probably assumed he was white because it's Fox, but how embarrassing. :air:

Minorities know and have to sound white in many situations...

Fox News does this a lot; they pay black men to argue on behalf of white issues. It's a job. But God forbid those black men over step their bounds because they will fire them immediately.

What does sound white even mean. Last time I checked white people don‘t speak the same language.

Her argumentation is the same though.

Do you actually watch Fox News or learn about them from SNL skits? They have a black host on 'The Five' who's the most left-leaning personality on their network.

Europeans need to stop acting like they don’t understand that when someone says something like this they are speaking of WHITE AMERICANS, which all speak English. 

We aren’t talking about Europe. AT ALL. 

It is very well known “sounding white” in how you speak and even having a “white sounding name” can get people far. 

“Sounding white” = being more “educated” in many people’s minds. 

Many black Americans have a distinct way of speaking that may difer from white Americans. Either AAVE or an accent.
