I wasn't wrong, or at least I don't think so any more. I just finished Unintended Consequences for the 2nd time, and saw what I had seen the first time: a white supremacist viewpoint, not explicitly stated but implicit in the author's choice of characters and how they behaved. the same thing I remembered from Bracken's Castigo Cay.

it's clear to me that both Ross's and Bracken's worlds revolve around intelligent, powerful, decisive white men who are either heroes or the chief villains, while Jews, blacks, and other minorities play bit parts if they are noticed at all.

it's probably none of my business, but it's irksome to me, and I think it hurts the cause of freedom.
