MSFT have record of thesaurus errors going back a long way. In their Latino Spanish Word 95 'Mexican' used to generate 'Thief', 'scum' and 'parasite', Nowadays it just generates 'cannibal' for Mexican Indian while 'Lesbians' is equated with "pervert" and "depraved person". "Western" returns 'Aryan', "civilised' and "white".
