As we go through our daily lives, working to support our families, spending time with the kids, and avoiding the news, it is easy to overlook the fact that we have everyday heroes among us. These individuals are bringing America closer to societal nirvana through their selfless acts of virtue. In this particular story, we have Jessica Bridges, an Oklahoma State University teaching assistant who is on the front lines in the battle against white supremacy.

During a Southern Connecticut State University’s 2021 Virtual Women’s and Gender Studies Conference held on Zoom, Bridges discussed the methods she is using to make for a less racist America. She noted that “racism originates with and is perpetuated by white people” and that “white isn’t right.” The teaching assistant then unveiled her plan to push back against the white racist power structure: She will not teach Spanish.

Why?

You guessed it – because she is a white woman.

Today, Oklahoma State University educator’s statements at a virtual conference of educators:

-“White people aren’t right”
-“Racism originates with and is perpetuated by white people”
-“Mourning her white morality”

Bridges indicated that she would confront her “internalized white supremacy” by refusing to teach the Spanish language to students. “Learning Spanish from a White woman, I wish I could go back and tell my students not to learn power or correctness from this White woman,” she explained.

The educator continued: “Dismantling white supremacy in society looks like dismantling in my heart first. It means I’m not going to teach Spanish.”

Fox News reported:

According to the same LinkedIn profile, Bridges received a Master’s Degree in Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture from the University of Northern Iowa in 2013. She had previously taught Spanish at Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky from 2004-2014.

The video clip showing Bridges making these comments circulated on social media, with many ridiculing the remarks. But she was not the only one who made absurd statements during the conference.
