Hostin made this statement in connection to the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA): "I do think that there is a thing called pretty privilege. There is a thing called White privilege. There is a thing called tall privilege, and we have to acknowledge that, and so part of it is about race, because if you think about the Brittney Griner of the world, why did she have to go to play in Russia? Because they wouldn’t pay her."
