re: Github is replacing the word master to avoid slavery references. Deal with it. VIEW POST


Politics and Political Correctness should not get into Git and the programming world. What's next? the color black should become African-American?

Should the word "master" be removed from the dictionary? What about the word "slave" or "slavery"?

(PERSONAL OPINION ALERT) Political Correctness is a stupid phenomenon in REAL LIFE, bring in it in the programming world is even stupider.

I wouldn't want to talk politics and political correctness with anyone on this site, but the CEO of GitHub is forcing us to do so, the very thing we at least escape in our code. It is sad.
