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:
until the entire system changes – THERE ARE NO GOOD #WHITEPEOPLE. THERE ARE ONLY LESS BAD WHITE PEOPLE!!!

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:
[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?
