My 50c ...
it is stupid to make such a rename ... why? ... because renaming from master to main is in its core very racist thing to do :)

If you perceive a word master in programming as a thing that can cause racism - or - you feel that it is somehow attacking you - then to tell you the truth - you are in your core a racist person.

Another 50c
blacks aren't the only race that was dominated by others. During our history, there was a big chunk of very bad things happening. Wanna example? See Slovakian people .. we were dominated by today's Hungary for over a thousand years. Yet I don't see any of my friends telling me ... see that master branch? let's rename it to the main cos I feel hurt...
