replacing "blacklist" and "whitelist" naming in our repos by something similar like "restricted" and "authorized"

It would be much cleaner and easier to understand at face-value if it were left as "Blacklist" and "Whitelist." Those words have nothing to do with humans, and have nothing to do with the color brown (which is the color of every human's skin). Maybe we should not call people "Black" or "White", instead?
