I am reasonably sure that whitelist and blacklist have nothing to do
with race, still it has to be changed. So it is a bit strange that you
do not include the greeting part of your message in the inclusiveness.

We should change the name of Serbia and go on a crusade to ban the
word picnic.
Maybe we should also change the terms upper and lower Egypt?
And what about master degrees?
And whitewashing, black eye, black Friday, black market, …?
