Seriously, I know you seem to see this as "blowing up". But it does so for a reason. We all need to take a deep breath and get back to reality. If we start on this path of picking words which would not offend someone, we would really not have that many words to pick from. "Principal" can be just as offending to someone as "master". Git was not written during the time of slavery, so it's context to "master" and "slave" in a slavery context is just moot.
This is just a silly storm in a water glass.
Seriously guys, get a grip. (Oh sorry! I might have offended the women in the audience by saying that.)
