Oops! CNN’s Areva Martin Accuses Fox News’ David Webb of ‘White Privilege’ – LISTEN!

*Po’ thang.

CNN contributor Areva Martin just had a big ol’ painful “oops” moment and it reminds us of the old Southwest Airlines commercial that asks, “Do you wanna get away?”

Tuesday morning, Martin basically learned that the hard way – after mistakenly accusing Sirius XM radio host and Fox News contributor David Webb of using his “white privilege” during a discussion on race – that Webb is, in fact, black!

Oh Lord.

It happened during a debate on whether race or qualifications should be an issue when hiring people for certain jobs. Martin made her move when Webb said that expertise and experience are what matter:

“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.”

Oops.
