Side hustles are just part of the modern economy. Sadly however, certain demographics have a different perspective – a different narrative, if you will – about what a side hustle is and entails. Those sorts tend more towards grifting, shucking, and jiving when they’re seeking people’s money.

As a lot of people already know, CNN’s “Legal Analyst,” Areva Martin recently accused David Webb of being a racist or, at least very much not “woke” while being interviewed on his Sirius XM radio show, â€œPatriotâ€ while discussing race, job qualifications, and applying for jobs .
Iâ€™ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that Iâ€™m qualified to be in each one,â€ Webb, a host on Fox Nation, told Martin in the interview. â€œI never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.â€
To which Martin, a civil rights attorney who co-hosts the syndicated talk show â€œFace the Truth,â€ responded: â€œWell, David, thatâ€™s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color donâ€™t have the privilege of.â€
â€œHow do I have the privilege of white privilege?â€ Webb asked.
â€œDavid, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I donâ€™t have time to get into â€” â€
â€œAreva, I hate to break it to you, but you shouldâ€™ve been better prepped,â€ Webb interrupted. â€œIâ€™m Black.â€
OK! Honestly, that’s just about as funny as things can get. Some professional race-baiting grifter – Martin’s a “Civil Rights” attorney – getting hoist on her own hate-fueled petard is hilarious and always will be so to me. Schadenfreude, it’s real.
Petards Mean Sappers
Funny or not though, Martin’s mistake highlights some of racial problems and problem causers inside America’s borders. We’ve too many like Martin who make a career out of racism and who see everything through the lens of “oppression,” and who – displaying a level hypocrisy well past the border of the absurd – make ignorance- and envy-fueled assumptions about people, e.g., assuming Mr. Webb being White because his opinion was contrary to “Being Black.”
And, of course, to people like Areva Martin and those, such as CNN, who pander to- and enable her sort, “White” equals “Bad.” “White” equals the “Oppressors,” either those seen as active so or merely those who have “benefited” from “Whiteness.”
But Webb Is White
Remember race is a social construct with little to no scientific significance outside of the modern pseudo-sciences of psychology and sociology. Therefor, Mr. Webb’s “Whiteness” or “Blackness” is also just a social construct and social constructs are determined by opinion and bias less than by a specific set of empirical facts
And yes, I make no bones about considering psychology and sociology to be pseudo-sciences. They’re both more of an art than a science and both are plagued by extreme biases.
And, as Mr. Webb is not maintaining the Black Narrative or behaving in a “Black Enough” manner, he’s essentially White. This is because the cultural gatekeepers of Blackness view that as the sin of Respectability Politics, something that they don’t willing tolerate.
Respectability politics is, at its root, the inability to look into the cold dark void of history. For if black people are â€” as I maintain â€” no part of the problem, if the problem truly is 100 percent explained by white supremacy, then we are presented with a set of unfortunate facts about our home.— Ta-Nehisi Coates
“Charles Barkley and the Plague of ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks”
And yeah, the Black Enough Blacks and those that make their living off of that particular narrative have names for such people: Uncle Tom, Oreo, Sell-Out, Race Traitor, Graham Cracker, and House Nigger to name the most common ones. But they all mean White or too close in culture and thought to being White.
So, while in one sense, Marin was stupidly and ignorantly wrong, in other ways – the ways that matter to her and her people – she was right.

Recently, in response to the pathetic outrage of the “Black Community” over the lack of Black Oscar nominees, Stacy Dash once again spoke truth to what passes for power among the Blacks within America’s borders. And, of course, once again the drums are beating and both the Blacks and their White Liberal enablers are attacking and vilifying Ms. Dash for voicing a truth that is contrary to the orthodoxy of Black Identity, steeped as it in special protections and victimhood.
It was a quite simple truth that Ms. Dash spoke as well:
We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we donâ€™t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where youâ€™re only awarded if youâ€™re black.
If it were the other way around, weâ€™d be up in arms. Itâ€™s a double standard. There shouldnâ€™t be a black history month. Weâ€™re Americans, period.
— Stacy Dash
Of course, it was the stark simplicity of Ms. Dash’s statement that, more than anything else, fired up the ever-angry and ever-aggrieved “Black Community.” It presented them with a clear and unassailable by logic choice: segregation or assimilation; being Black or being American. This is not something that they can tolerate because their culture’s very identity is based upon not making that choice but, instead, demanding to have it both ways.
Essentially, in my opinion, the Blacks want to be segregated in that they want to behave however they wish to behave, irrespective of whether or not it fits in with the normative values and mores of American society yet, at the same time, they never want those behaviors to in any way negatively impact their personal or communal outcomes, hence integration.
And before any fool claims that I can’t speak of Blacks as if they’re monolithic in outlook, any Black – as Ms. Dash has proven – that doesn’t adhere to their orthodoxy is declared “Not Black Enough.”
Thus, I can speak so.Â It is, after all, by the “Black Community’s” own tacit admission a matter of culture and ideology, not genetics.
It’s a simple American truth, you are or become a part of us or you don’t. We don’t easily accept any middle ground when it comes to assimilation. This is a truth that the “Black Community” both fears and hates. Hence, they will attack any Black, such as Stacy Dash, that openly accepts this truth and speaks it aloud. Indeed, they have an entire well-established lexicon of epithets for such apostates.
Schadenfreude is arguably petty but I’m honest enough with myself to know that I enjoy it. I especially enjoy it when the situation that engenders it is and was so easily predictable, such as the Black protests and proto-riots at the University of Missouri and other campuses where the Blacks have risen up and claimed oppression, victimhood, and a violation of the “Safe Spaces.”
How Did This Campus Political Correctness Get So Far Out Of Hand?
After decades of the teachers and administrators of America’s colleges and universities feeding the monkeys on a steady diet of ethnoguiltism, victimology, and manufactured outrage and angst against Whites and especially “White Authority” they really shouldn’t be shocked that the Blacks and the Liberal and Progressive Millennials that have been pandering to- and enabling them turned around and bit those very same hands that fed them.
In a very real sense these schools are reaping exactly what they’ve sown. And, if they have created a climate which brought seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something they never dreamed of, that is wholly and solely their own fault.
