The New White Privilege

It seems that ‘white privilege’ may be an equal opportunity privilege.

During a guest radio appearance, a CNN legal analyst said the show’s host, who is black, has benefited from “white privilege.”

The segment aired Tuesday during a SiriusXM show hosted by David Webb, who is also a contributor at Fox News. His guest during the segment was Areva Martin, a civil rights attorney and CNN legal analyst.

“Well, David, 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,” said Martin.

When Webb asks how he benefits, Martin said it’s “by virtue of being a white male.”

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