Speaking via Zoom during a virtual event for women and diversity studies, Jessica Bridges, a white Spanish teacher, said she would stop teaching the language because it was not suitable for a white woman to teach Spanish.
Though the Spanish speaker hails from Europe, Bridges came to her revelation after encountering a course she found on Instagram for how to be a better “white ally” and “anti-racist co-conspirator.”
“White isn’t right,” she said during the Southern Connecticut State University’s Virtual Women’s and Gender Studies Conference conducted over Zoom.
According to The Post Millennial, Bridges chastised herself for teaching children to “learn 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 said. “I would tell them to stand in their own power. White isn’t right.”
In a Twitter post, a video of Bridges can be seen, touting her interpretation of a master class that purportedly taught Karl Marx’s philosophies. Part of Bridges revelation she derived from the course was she “was a colonizer.”
