This week’s winner is Areva Martin, a legal analyst for CNN. She was a guest on a SiriusXM radio show. The host said he felt his experience played a bigger role in getting jobs than his race. She responded “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”’. There was just one problem. The host was black.
It seems to me that you are not doing someone a favor when you tell them they can’t get ahead because of the color of their skin and everything bad thing that happens to them is somebody else’s fault.
