A CNN contributor, Areva Martin, made an accusation in regards to Fox Nation and Sirius XM host David Webb in a radio segment that literally couldn’t happen on television on Tuesday.
In a segment about equal opportunity and fair hiring on live radio, Martin asserted that Webb had been the beneficiary of “privilege” within the context of his professional career, which “people of color don’t have.” Webb had spoken about how he had considered professional qualification the driving factor throughout his experiences in media.
Webb seemed initially confused by Martin’s accusation- justifiably so, as the individual she was accusing of possessing white privilege happened to be black. After asking her for clarification, Martin explained to Webb that “by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.” A surprised Webb went on correct Martin’s false assumption that she was speaking to a privileged white male.
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped: I’m black.”
A corrected Martin would go on to explain that she stood corrected, offering her apologies to Webb for her incorrect perception of the person she was debating over issues pertaining to equal opportunity in American society.
Could we have seen a preview of the next innovation in progressive social justice from Martin? Perhaps you don’t need to be white to be a beneficiary of “white privilege” after all- opening up a path for progressives and liberals to apply the phrase towards right-of-center individuals of all racial backgrounds. In other words, all that could be required to be “privileged” is to be deemed inconvenient to the progressive left.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
