She's a great representative of the democrat party. That's the self-own of the year so far. I only say "so far" because there will be many more. These are liberals we're talking about, their talking points and retorts are all from the same ignorant playbook.

To that I say, stop being lazy, try being independent and researching your own data and talking points, and if you can do that, good luck remaining a liberal.

They don't have to apologize, just need to do better screening and preps beforehand, and verify with certainty race, ideology, politics, religion, toxic masculinity, etc so that it doesn't happen again, and that their target for hate is actually worthy of it.



The apology definitely wouldn't be accepted. But look at what these same people said Milo Yannopoulis. Said he was homophobic racist. He's a gay white dude with a black boyfriend. He just didn't view the world from their eyes. It's truly a shame that news agencies refuse to call these people out. If they would just do that, this would likely come to an end.

Pure racism.

Now, we have a precedent already set for this, thanks to the situations surrounding people like Dwayne Chapman, Paula Deen, and Terry Bollea. Areva Martin should be forced to apologize publicly, fired from her position at CNN, and stripped of any honors or awards she has ever received for anything she has done. Any investments or assets of a public nature should also be confiscated for the public good, and she should be barred from ever appearing on a news show again.

Sucks when you get caught by your own rules, I guess...

She's the perfect example of the type of person that should be sent to these reeducation camps. Of course, she would probably learn to act the same way she acts now since those who are sent there are brainwashed into feeling like Abreva.

Yes, it would suck being caught by your own rules if her people would call her out but we all know she'll be coddled and they'll cover her story up. Worst case scenario, MSM runs an 8 second headline and goes right back to talking about how selfish Trump is for serving fast food to the Clemson Tiger football team for beating a team that decided not to show up and instead handed them a gift win.

That's an LOL moment for sure. The team should have prepped her a bit better.


Her team probably didn't know he was black either. I mean come on, his name is David. Ain't nobody black named David, just white supremacists and white men suffering from white privilege.

If this doesn't show everything we need to know about the sensitivity mob culture we've created, and the whole notion of "white privilege", then I dont know what does.

White privilege, as a concept, is racist as hell when you apply any standard of scrutiny to it.


And it's always, ALWAYS, the left who bring up race. Always.

Listen, it’s a scientific fact that anybody who disagrees with the American left, on any topic, is a literal Nazi. That’s regardless of race.

It is known.

You didn’t get the memo that questioning the concept of white privilege, is racist, and proves you suffer from said privilege.

Please forgive me, I'm still trying to learn the ways of the oh-so-enlightened left.

If you are thinking logically, that’s whiteness too.

Regardless as to how some foolishly use the term, white privilege does exist. It wouldn't cause such fervor if you accepted reality instead of pretending you live in a super equal society.

Ignorance truly is bliss,breh.

I'd respect the perspective more if you just admitted that you don't care, instead of pretending to maintain some level of nobility and simply finding that privilege doesn't exist.

This thread is filled with fallacy. Many of you are so defensive about white privilege you'll attach yourself to anything that makes you feel better about yourself and your beliefs.

Yeah, I'm defensive about "white privilege." I'm about as defensive about it as I would be if a known serial killer were holding a gun to my head.

As it is being used, as evidenced by Martin's own statements, it is an automatic black mark against someone who happens to be white. That's all it is. If there is such a thing as actual "white privilege," it is made moot by the fact that the term is applied to anyone that disagrees with the applier as long as their skin is pale... in this case, even when one's skin is not so pale. It's been weaponized just like "racist" was weaponized.

So, anyone claiming that there is something wrong with being defensive about the misuse of the term is being purposely deceitful and malicious.

In which sense?

Even if white privilege does exist, it’s way over exaggerated and abused as a concept.

Sjws literally claim that Corey Booker is less privileged than an impoverished trailer park white kid in the Appalachians with a single drug addicted mother.

I’ve had multiple people professionally tell me I’m not highly qualified nor have had to work hard, because I’m blonde and white. Often the same have a small fraction of my experience and education.

From what I’ve seen most “privilege” is from wealth and connections. Class.

In my last job without any doubt people of color and women whose parents were highly connected, or whom themselves had worked on political campaigns and knew politicians, were treated way better, had the same jobs or higher level with LESS qualifications, and were promoted over others. THATs privilege. There were people who had the same job as me, when by their own admission it was their first real job, with a bachelors degree. I had almost 10 yrs exp and two masters degrees. One was the son of a politician. Another was the daughter of a major political donor. Black and Jewish respectively.
