What's going to happen when people realize that even after they rewrite the dictionary; remove all the statues; change all the holidays and defund the police; that there is still institutionalized racism, sexisum, and bigotry because the things they spent all their time and energy on are small potatoes compared to the larger problems?

Ok, here's a thought. This is all being done because the term "master" is being tied in with slavery and ownership, right?? Well, if we're going to change all of this because of it's connotations, then will rappers be forced to change their names?? Think about how many rappers has "Master" in their name. Not only that, but even more rappers have "MC" in their names, which stands for "Master of Ceremonies".

If they're not willing to change those sorts of names, then nothing else should have to change at all.

They need to outlaw Masters Degrees also if the word master is now a bad thing. Well to be honest, half the people with Masters Degrees aren't any better than those who do not have them, but they often believe they are better. Not all people with Masters Degrees are like that though, actually only about ten to fifteen percent are, I have known about two dozen people over my lifetime that had Masters degrees, and only about five of them got big heads.

Don’t forget the insidious master cylinders that have literally enslaved millions of slave cylinders on brake and clutch systems for automobiles.

I don't understand why that would be; my Masters degree was a lot easier to obtain than my undergraduate. I was actually dumbfounded how easy it was at the time. There really is nothing special about a Masters that a few years job experience can't equal.

Wait until they come after technology for the use of master/slave drives and such.


Python's official docs changed those terms years ago.

"Master's Degree"
Sorry Universities. Time to use the generic phrase "Post-Graduate Degree"

I live in a planned community called Woodside PLANTATION, begun in the early 90’s and adding about 75 new homes each year. Not small—over 2,000 homes. In South Carolina. All fenced-in and four separate resident only entry gates. Three are manned 12 hours per day, the main gate 24/7. Yeah, I know, lots of white privilege. (In my case, AKA hard work for 40 years). There are rumblings that new signage is in the works for our main entry gate—-though it hasn’t been officially mentioned, I have a feeling Woodside Plantation may become simply Woodside. If “master” is a no-no...plantation can’t be far behind.

what's really sad about this is, master bedroom has nothing to do with slavery.
first recorded use of the term was in a Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog in 1926,




By the turn of the century, most bedrooms were built on the second floor of the home, making them much more private. The 1926 Sears catalog marks the first recorded use of the phrase “master bedroom.” At $4,398 the Dutch colonial house was the most expensive in the catalog, featuring: a sunporch, built-in kitchen cupboards, and a “master’s” bedroom with a “private” bathroom.

Yeah, you are right, but some of the people who have them think it makes them better than those who don't have them. That is the way it is, it gives some people a big head when they have a degree hanging on the wall.

I think what will happen is that those examples you cited will be the only ones allowed to use the word, effectively taking ownership of it so if anybody else uses it they are racist. Same thing they did with the N word.

I have a Master's degree, a M.Sc. to be precise, and I have an IQ of 175, and I'm only big-headed because of the size of my spectacular brain. Now, leave us intellectually superior Master's degree holders alone you mouth breathing peasant, I need to contemplate a plethora of complicated concepts which your inferior intellectual capacity could not even begin to comprehend.

Well, somebody better order a whole bunch of mood stabilizers.

If "master" is out the door because of rascism, then masturbation is probably not far behind!

Poor kids, what are they going to do now?
Lol

I heard the proper substitute for "master" is "primary", like Primary Bedroom. So I guess you are now a Primarybater?
