A white graduate student lecturer at Rutgers University – who identifies himself as a “queer feminist” – told his Twitter followers that “there are no good white people,” saying “there are only less bad white people” in this world.
until the entire system changes – THERE ARE NO GOOD #WHITEPEOPLE. THERE ARE ONLY LESS BAD WHITE PEOPLE!!!

Kevin Allred, who is teaching a summer course in women’s studies called “Politicizing Beyoncé,” told The College Fix that his comments were intended to spark discussion on the privilege enjoyed by white Americans.
Such as himself.
“[W]hiteness plays an invisible role in dominating and oppressing everyone else. And I’m speaking about a U.S. context specifically here,” he said.
He gave no examples for how he was dominating and oppressing other people, but he provided the College Fix with a general outline of his thought process.
“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.”
Allred tried to justify his Twitter comments by saying the “entire system” needs to change before white people can be described as “good.”
“I didn’t say there are ‘no good white people’ – I meant until the system changes completely to erase these stereotypes in general, no white people should be seen as de facto good. We (white people) should be seen in grades of ‘less bad’ to balance out the ways other groups are unfairly seen.”
Like a typical redistributionist, Allred’s “solution” to a perceived injustice is to make sure the “privileged” are treated worse moving forward.
He went on to say that that minorities are unfairly held accountable for problems that exist within their communities, while white people get a pass.
“I was trying to point out the irony that stereotypes affect people of color so that they are never seen as individuals, they are always answering for the stereotype that is applied to an entire group,” Allred said.
According to his website, “one of his goals as a teacher, writer, and speaker is to break down barriers that exist between the academy and the lived experiences of communities.”
Because nothing “breaks down barriers” between liberal academia and regular communities like a white queer feminist male claiming that an entire race of people should be considered “bad.”
Unfortunately, this kind of self-loathing liberal nonsense is all too common in higher education among white progressives.
No wonder Rachel Dolezal wanted to be black.
