David Webb

While discussing a recent controversy stoked by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over CBS failing to hire any black journalists to cover the 2020 election, Webb asked Martin what she thought.

Martin said she agreed with Ocasio-Cortez that it was unacceptable for media outlets to claim that there aren’t enough journalists of color available, to which Webb responded that he had “31 years” of experience in the media, adding “I’ve seen the coverage, and I’ve also seen it change, generationally … I have not seen the lack of [diversity], I’ve seen, actually growth in it

Webb then asked Martin if Black Entertainment Television (BET) should be forced to hire a white or Hispanic reporter, which Martin said would be up to BET.

Arguing that that qualifications should be the deciding factor over race, Webb said “I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue,” to which Martin replied:

“Well, David, that’s a whole ‘other 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 cut in: “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

To which Martin shot back: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.”

Webb then replied: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped. I’m black … See, you went to white privilege. This is the falsehood in this. You went immediately with an assumption … You’re talking to a black man who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop, rebuilding one of the greatest black stations in America, and went on to work for Fox News, where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work, but yet you come with this assumption and you go to white privilege. That’s actually insulting!”

Martin apologized, claiming “My people gave me wrong information.”

  1. I have a lot of faith in hard-working black males in this country. They see the lies of the dems, and they see the waste of the government. The black women take a lot longer to come around, but less so if they are married to a black man with good work ethic and common sense. Have seen it first hand.

    1. America has become an anti-male sexist, anti-Caucasian racist, anti-Christian and heterosexual bigoted country discriminating the only remaining small minority group of Christian, heterosexual Caucasian men without a green card for protection of their God given rights.

  2. dose anyone know a bigger piece of shit news rag than cnn of course not these as_holes gave a black man the riot act about white privilage these assholes didn,t even check to see who the man was before they back stabbed him for being white and he,s a black man. thanks cnn (CARTOON NEWS NETWORK) FOR SHOWING US WHAT A BUNCH OF ASSHOLES YOU ARE BUT ONCE AGAIN.

    1. Martin just showed what Webb was trying to tell her by saying her people had given her wrong information. When you are going on the air to try and push your agenda you need to know what you’re talking about. Had Webb wanted to make her look like what she is he could have said, this is what we were discussing, race over factor.

  3. CNN and Democrats has not shame at all.
    This is racism to the extreme. There are millions of African American men in this country highly educated and prepared. What a sin ..!!

  4. David Webb is a class act. Intelligent, articulate, successful, and moral. I love how smooth he handled this racist woman. She is a big part of the problem. And Obama was the king of racism!

  5. Its a mad mad world.Its root hog or die.the attitude of both black and white is f*** you and hooray for me .Whatever will be will be.God is in charge not a mere mortal man.

  6. This is modus oprandi for racist Africans and the anti-America Democrats. I remember Jessie Jackson running off to Illinois to defend a group of teenage African hoodlums because they beat-up a fellow school student and were expelled from school by the school principal. Wellllll, crap! The student they beat-up was a black intellectual (not White) and the school principal was a black educator (not White). Jessie did his perfunctory night in jail and returned home with his tail between his legs. Just another example of the brainless racism of the anti-America Democrats and Obama jock-straps (supporters).

  7. Perhaps Martin should fire “her people” and find some who are competent…. Oh, that’s right… I forget that competence doesn’t count in her mind.

  8. It doesn’t matter what media outlet it is, they jump to conclusions, throw half truths out there and down right LIE!!!!! That’s why I call all TV, radio, newspaper, whatever fake news! They research nothing, just throw out their own opinions and too many people swallow it. By the end of a day or two they are proven wrong as usual, but by that time the real nutsos aren’t listening anymore, they have had their minds made up for them by the lying media. I think it is funny that martin now has to blame her mistake on her staff, just another person doing a half ass hatchet job! I use to watch her on other shows and she always seem to be great, but her real self came out, blaming others for what she hasn’t got the character to change.

  9. It is so nice to see a racist Black person fall flat on their face. They are always so fast to throw racism and “White Privilege” out there. What is so embarrassing is that they do that without knowing what they are talking about.
