Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of "white privilege" during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. "Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should've been better prepped. I'm black," Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. "I've chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I'm qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue," Webb said. "That's a whole, another 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 – who also hosts CBS' "Face the Truth."

Whenever one of my colleagues says they have white privilege, I always wonder if it's contagious. Should I try to catch it, or protect myself from it?

Same way OJ did before the low-speed chase?
OJ was the black person white America felt safe to love.
They even joked about how he'd bang your wife.

It's hilarious to me that the SJWs think they can get away with clearly racist terms like Snoofy's #5 because they think they are "woke."

I'd love to see Snoofy's dental bill if he went down to Oak Park and called someone that...

#7, I'm almost afraid to ask whether #5 was directed at me, but whatever. Spoofy is nothing but an online garbage bot.

I'm not afraid it to inform you it was a retort to Webb's question, but whatever.

BS, Andrea, a mattress.

The meaning of house n. doesn't hinge on the prejudices of either the speaker or the audience.

This isn't code, like "thug" or "welfare queen" or "suspect with no outstanding warrants."

LOL this sounds like something Dirk would do.

Except Dirk is a middle class late 20-something hipster with skinny jeans, slicked back greasy hair and a speech impediment due to his tongue piercing.

Now that Spoofy was smacked down for his obvious racism, they are busy trying to come up with a new pejorative to hurl at Webb for this situation, because their racist vocabulary doesn't cover it.

You plonked them to protect your Safe Space, Nullifidian. Remember?

None of them are chiming in on this thread other than you and let's face it, it went very poorly for you.

What are you talking about?
It's going great for me.
You guys aren't even discussing the topic any more.
Instead you're trying to outdo each other in calling me racist.

By the way, does the term I used and the term RightOCenter used in #14 have different meanings?

Webb: "I've chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I'm qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,"

There's a difference between choosing to look past the impact of race and claiming there is none.

Webb is not wrong to want to believe he's being judged solely by the content of his character.

But empirical evidence says that is not the way the world actually works.

Nope, the world works on perceptions.

But who's responsibility is it to change perceptions? The race as a whole or the person looking in from the outside?

"Nope, the world works on perceptions."

That doesn't contradict what I said.

Perceiving someone's skin color... is a perception.

The Flat Earth Society Agrees.

In fact, they're going to codify that position at their next worldwide convention, where they expect to attract delegates from around the globe.

No, perceiving how someone of a certain skin color is going to react to certain situations is perception.

Yes, perceiving someone's skin color is a perception.

"perceiving how someone of a certain skin color is going to react to certain situations is perception."

That's more like a prejudice, when it's the skin color that determines how you think that person will respond.

Actual experience. So, if you go into the hood and you always get robbed there's the threat of violence, or there stats that say crime happens in these areas more often, is it prejudice then?

If you apply that knowledge to hoods you haven't actually experienced, then by your definition, it has to be prejudice.

I'd rather be stupid than kill babies, Boaz.

But I defer to your expertise in both.
