'Anti-racist' white teacher stopped teaching Spanish to students because she is 'dismantling white supremacy in society'

A white teacher proclaimed that she is "dismantling white supremacy in society" by not teaching Spanish to her students. The anti-racist teacher proclaimed that she is holding herself accountable for her skin color by grappling with her own "internalized white supremacy."

Jessica Bridges is a Ph.D. candidate at the College of Education and Human Sciences at Oklahoma State University. She made "anti-racism and white women's complicity" her dissertation topic.

Bridges spoke at Southern Connecticut State University's Virtual Women's and Gender Studies Conference, a two-day event in late April that focused on "Gender, Race, Community & Conflict: Pursuing Peace and Justice." The conference included presentations such as "Diverging Feminisms: Engaging Transnational/Translational Activism," "Sex, Work, & Care as Resistance in the Age of Capitalism," "Undoing the White Settler-Colonial Gaze: Asserting Gendered, Racialized, and Radicalized Body Autonomy," "Understanding Your Vicarious Trauma during COVID-19 and Beyond," and "Igniting Social Justice, Community Engagement, and Diversity within the Neoliberal Academy."

Bridges spoke during the "White Accountability & Anti-Racist Education" presentation.
