Dunno what that's supposed to mean. You'll find it more fruitful to think of Kipling as an imperialist writer in the high noon of the British Empire. Which has its good and bad points. Said, who found Kipling's political views disgusting, nonetheless thought Kim a masterwork. And it is. Though nobody would call his verse first-rate, it did have admirers—notably, T. S. Eliot.

his opinions weren't that awful

I can see how you'd hate him if you worked in an American university in the sixties or had to sit through mediocre lectures on Burnt Norton in an undergraduate course. But Eliot really isn't so bad.
