I find political correctness rather nausiating. Folks should stop trying to apologies for
what others did, often hundreds of years ago.
I was not part of that. The advanced education system, the political system and the current
wealth control systems around the globe, are in fact and indeed "Master-Slave" relationships;
so why cleanse this notion prematurely?

Master-slave has a rich history in the entire field of compuatational resources and electronics.
That usage has nothing to do with social conventions and failings of the past. So, if you
want to do something effective for those of us less fortunate, why not use terms like

Elite-taxpayer  or  Lawyer-citizen or Billionare-wager  or 
Professor-debtor ?

  Something more apropo?

The concept of a master has been around ever since (2) males or more 
graced this planet (your theories of soccial evilutoin may vary but they
are irrelevant).

Commander? General ? Generalisimo?   Master_Chief  Warlord?

Why not get rid of the entire Apache evironment why you are at it?
This line of reasoning is nothing but *STUPID*   You cannot errase
the history of the warrior existence of mankind. Nor should any today
apologize for historical convention. WE did not commit any bad deeds
before we were born, so just get over it!
