A concerning commit which breaks compatibility

goldeneagle96
Hello OpenBSD devs. It has come to my attention that a mysterious commit
, unlogged by CVS, has appeared. This commit changes language, breaking
compatibility on header and source files.
Thankfully, it was logged by the Github mirror.
The commit's author is the Github username "djmdjm", and the one who
okayed it was "markus@".
Please, I ask of you and specially of Theo to look at this strange
commit, and decide what to do about it.
Its link is https://github.com/openbsd/src/commit/5bde2954c180034a27b079acaff46073dc75139b

this is probably due to the recent social discussion about the black
lives matter movement. engineers around the world show their support to
this movement against racism by various measurs, e.g. adjusting their
code of conduct/rules etc. In many cases, "blacklist" should not relate
to something negative/weak/bad because this could lead to conscious or
unconscious negative behaviour against people of different skin tones.

I'll only reply on misc@ as I think this is where it belongs. Here it's
the commit in cvsweb[0], the mail in marc.info[1], and I can confirm the
change is present at least in obsdacvs.cs.toronto.edu. Also, claiming
"breaking compatibility on header and source files" in *internal* files
is stupid. Please do your homework before shitposting.
