    On the contrary, whitelist/blacklist terms seem to have everything to do with racism.
    Good initiative from LLVM community

    Or violence would be pure unspoken one, something you can't denounce, discern, or condemn. You would be a true slave but you would not have the word to name it, and if you find the word, you'll be punished to say it.

    Dungeon Manager… it would be awesomely wrong given american management doctrine was fed from nazis at the end of world war 2. For some unknown reason Nazi management theorists were free to teach their doctrine about the management of the human material to US elites, like Reinhard Höhn one of the theorist of the Menschen-führung, who established a post-war executive school to freely disseminate into the world the nazi worker alienation practices.

    Not using the word master isn't gonna help anything. If you want to contribute to a positive change, you have to do something a bit more complicated than that. I see this as a pathetic effort by clueless people to seem relevant where they aren't.

    I'd like to know how whitelist and blacklist are racist. They can only be racist if the person associating these terms with skin colors is racist. These terms have never been about skin color. They have always been about "if there's light it's good" and "if there's no light it's bad".
    Yes, the history of the terms is in the ancient religions that considered day and light good and night and darkness bad.

    Associating blacklist and whitelist with racism is in itself racist on so many levels. The obvious link is mistaking these for skin colors, but the added racism comes in form of denying other skin colors, or "races", from existence, which is similar behavior to "transphobes" who only acknowledge two genders, denying loonies their favourite pronouns.

    The word "работа" - work and the word "раб" - slave, have the same stem. Your "work history" is "рабочая книжка". Furthermore, the very words "Slav" and "slave" are related, i.e. English "slave" is derived from "Slav" by ways of Greek and Latin. Are we renaming the people and languages now too?

    Someone is trolling the LLVM list.

    Well, that's the last nail in the coffin for me. From now on I'm gonna be using GCCJIT, libFirm or other alternatives where I might have used LLVM.

    Well, it provides a full time job for dozens of mediocre coders sending pull requests with textual rewrites and suggestions to pick up stronger CoC frameworks along the way.

    Next up: go back to SVN or Mercurial because "git" is an insult.
