Rutgers lecturer: ‘No good white people … only less bad white people’

Alternatively, one might suppose, the only good cracker is a dead cracker.

The sentiment in either case is that of a graduate student lecturer at Rutgers University named (appropriately) Kevin Allred, who recently declared on Twitter:

Having perused Allred’s Twitter page, which is interspersed with profanity and numerous other digs at #whitepeople (hashmark his), I think it’s fair to conclude he is a self-hating white person. At least, I assume he is white. (In this, the era of Rachel Dolezal, it’s no longer easy to say.) Here is an enlargement of the picture he uses as his Twitter avatar:

As the College Fix notes, Allred, who further describes himself as a queer feminist, is teaching a summer course at Rutgers called “Politicizing Beyoncé.” In an email to the Fix, he wrote:

[W]hiteness plays an invisible role in dominating and oppressing everyone else. And I’m speaking about a U.S. context specifically here.

Our system was built on the labor of many while few benefited from that labor – those few were typically and still typically are rich, straight, white men. This is a basic conversation about privileges, which I know from our exchange we have different opinions on.

Rutgers is a public university, meaning that Allred’s salary is funded by taxes, including those collected by the federal government. Is this how you want your tax dollars spent?
