Subject Re: IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PEOPLE RUNNING TRUNK re: [Bug 7826] Improve language around whitelist/blacklist and master/slave

Besides, they are not black and Irish me is not white. We are all various shades 
of beige. And I am a racist because I judge people on their own individual 
actions, capabilities, and initiative. So surely that is being racist, at least 
as seen by people who deep inside feel that the people who call themselves black 
when they aren't (for the most part not even close) are really inferior. They 
are admitting their own racism. I'm a capability-ist if anything.
