    It's almost like you would have to go out of your way to be offended.

    if it is from a truly racist source or if it gives offence to the educated then let us change. I have no problem with Block / allow list (seems very sensible as it is clearer) or Primary / Replica or Parent / child.

    Master-slave terminology alternatives you can use right now


    If its "calling a spade a spade" then tell them NO.

    Parent / Child is offensive to people (a) if they want kids but can't have them - reminds them what they haven't got and how society pities them; (b) don't like children and/or don't want them - reminds them that society perceives the childfree as freaks

    I dunno, IBM helped get the Jews to the gas chamber with their punch card system and nobody gives a flying feck about that.

    "The master-slave relationship in technology usually refers to a system where one - the master - controls other copies, or processes."
