you missed some. Seriously though, are you aware that the terms "master" and "slave" are racially neutral? The concept of slavery goes back thousands of years (every race can claim to have been enslaved, in fact the term "Slav" comes from the Romans keeping eastern Europeans as slaves). This feel-good virtue signalling is not going to do anything to solve any actual problem, rather it's going to make the tech industry a complete laughing stock. Otherwise, neat analyzer program.
