      Description

      Until recently, I haven’t fully considered the racist connotations of terms like whitelist and blacklist. Better late than never, I hope. While I don’t think the terms have racist origins, the white is good and black is bad implication doesn’t sit comfortably anymore. Just as we strive to avoid referring to users as he or using guys to refer to a group of people, I think we should avoid using whitelist. Instead, we should use allowList and denyList.
