Github plans to replace racially insensitive terms

GitHub CEO Nat Friedman said the company is working on replacing the term ’master’ on its service with a neutral term to avoid any unnecessary references to slavery. Some of the terms that could be replaced include: ’master’ and ’slave’ for alternatives like ’main/default/primary’ and ’secondary’; ’blacklist’ and ’whitelist’ for ’allow list’ and ’deny/exclude list’.

A good example of someone trying to be racially sensitive without switching on their brain....those terms were never connected to any kind of racial behaviour. Next they gonna rename the "Master" study course at my university because it's also a "bad word"? I hope better minds will prevail over senseless misguided Zeitgeist

When are they going to ban the writings of Karl Marx, an avid proponent of slavery? When are they going to ban socialism which is responsible for all slavery in modern times outside of MENA?
