The terms "master" and "slave" have been widely used within electronics, but we need to recognise that these terms are racially charged. There are plenty of alternative words that can be used, and thus avoid unnecessary references to slavery. For example, the term "master" can become "controller" or "host", and "slave" can become "client" or "peripheral".
I have recently made a few edits replacing instances of these words with alternatives. These have been rejected. The only comment I receive from these rejections is that "The edit does not improve the quality of the post. Changes to the content are unnecessary or make the post more confusing." There doesn't seem to be a mechanism for responding to a rejection itself, so I think the only avenue I have is to ask about it here.
The code of conduct for this StackExchange community reads:
No bigotry. We don’t tolerate any language likely to offend or alienate people based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion — and those are just a few examples. Use stated pronouns (when known). When in doubt, don't use language that might offend or alienate.
The terms that these edits are replacing clearly fall within the category of language that is "likely to offend or alienate people based on race". Why are these edits being refused?
Is the Electronics StackExchange community going to acknowledge that these terms need to be replaced so that it can take a step towards inclusivity?
