wording: avoid blacklist/whitelist stereotypes #5546
Here are some references. Doing this change is easy and functionality-wise totally harmless. I don't see why we couldn't just change the wording if there's even just a risk that the use of these phrases actually are doing things worse for a minority.
If the only argument against it is but x-list is not racist then I will choose to ignore that argument.
Thanks for playing. I'm merging this now.
