...you'd hear the same thing? They'd be OK with Lenin, because he's white?

Dunno, I don't doubt MS is full of backward hicks, like I said, been there, so, it could be they'd totally be all for a white Marxist.

And, it could be they'd hate a black conservative just as much and might say the same thing. Since it would be hard to know for sure, you should probably stick to a blanket condemnation.

-----To translate it into UNIX system administration terms (Randy’s fundamental metaphor for just about everything), the post-modern politically correct atheists were like people who had found themselves in charge of a big and unfathomably complex computer system (viz. society) with no documentation or instructions of any kind, and so whose only way to keep the thing running was to invent and enforce certain rules with a kind of neo-Puritanical rigor, because they were at a loss to deal with any kind of deviations from what they saw as the norm. Whereas people who were wired into a church were like UNIX system administrators who, while they might not understand everything, at least had some documentation, some FAQs and How-tos and README files, providing some guidance on what to do when things got out of whack. -Neil Stephenson, Cyrptonomicon
