Fox Nation host David Webb saw one of his radio segments go viral this week when a CNN legal analyst mistakenly accused him of showing "white privilege."

Webb hosted Areva Martin on his Sirius XM show Tuesday, discussing whether a person's race should factor into hiring decisions. Webb said he has "never considered my color the issue" and relied on his experience to grow professionally in the media world.

“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."


A dumbfounded Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

Martin responded, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.”

"Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black," Webb responded, with Martin later claiming her staff gave her wrong information. 

On his Fox Nation show, "Reality Check," Webb talked to comedian and YouTube host Dave Rubin, who called out the "lazy way of thinking" by many on the left. 

He said this type of mentality is "permeating" the left and academia in America, where women and minorities are told to "think a certain way."

"This is prejudice," said Rubin, arguing there is a new form of "pernicious racism" coming from the left. 

Webb and Rubin, both talk show hosts, scoffed at the idea that Martin's staff would have handed her a piece of paper listing his race.
