    Imagine this. That teacher had to learn everything she didn’t know in order to teach Ruby everything she needed to learn.

    I am a 78 year old woman. I was raised in a small mid-western town. When I started first grade, two black girls were in my class. It didn’t seam to bother any of us at the time. Probably because the black population was pretty small at that time. I still live in the same town, and the black population has grown some, but they are still in the minority. We also have a small American Indian population. I guess were are an example of the milting pot of America.

    It took me some time to realize that segregated schools are still very common. It’s just okay now because it’s the neighborhood school. I didn’t experience any diversity until high school and it was eye opening to go from 95% Hispanic to a very diverse classroom. We still have a long way to go.

    Miss Ruby Bribges should be claimed as an, “American treasure.” Miss Bridges and her first teacher, are true American heroes.

    It’s sad to see that schools are still segregated after 60 years. There should be a mandate for this to stop happening…along with all kids exposed the same curriculum, blacks and whites.
    The 1619 Project expressed this a lot…check it out.

    I met her when she came to my college in 1996. A highlight of my life. She breathes love into life.

    This is a garbage conversation because Native black Americans have been put on the bottom of America from the beginning and none of your conversation deals with that issue! This conversation is a colossal waste of time and energy!

    Are Americans becoming aware of the possible reason Trump refuses to concede, the way even a losing POTUS can take advantage of an unaddressed loophole in the constitution to retain power, against the will of the voting public? This video was made 2 weeks BEFORE the elections but the accuracy of its prediction to this point is frightening. Hope ppl do what is necessary to protect not only US interests but those of others who also be affected.

    SHE IS A KICKAPOO WOMAN AND DON’T KNOW IT. You’re talking to an ORIGINAL PERSON found HERE when Christopher Columbus CAME to OUR LAND HERE on TURTLE ISLAND. She is a COPPER SKINNED WOMAN not a BLACK r BROWN woman not even a African AmericAn she is an INDIGENOUS Algonquin SPEAKING descendant of those who were here before the COLONIZERS CAME SHE is COPPER SKINNED we’re still HERE and not OUR ANCESTORS we’re here to stay till ETERNITY when we and the EARTH REALIZE who WE TRUELY ARE. YOU know who YOU are Trevor, how YOU came to be, we DO NOT. Spread this INFORMATION because ain’t nobody talking ABOUT US just to US and gaining off OUR votes to CONTINUE the LIES, which by the by goes AGAINST OUR SET DIVINE LAWS, STATUTES, and COMMANDMENTS but yet we continue to blindly cast OUR votes for strangers to rule over us and our LAND when is this going to become NEWS?

    Its a shame this inspiring woman still has to live with the symbol, creators, and propagators of Jim Crow Laws, the Democratic party. Formally known as the Dixiecrats.
