      Description

      Problem:
      The use of racially charged terms like "whitelist" and "blacklist" connotate goodness and badness to specific colors, which can be exclusionary and offensive.

      Solution:
      Use non-exclusionary terms instead. I suggest allow-list and deny-list. This change should be made in product as well as in our documentation.
