First things first: I saw you joined just a few days ago. I am glad you joined this great community. Welcome!

Thanks for your reply. I agree 100% with your comment. It's good to see people like you with a healthy attitude to this subject.

Most people don't understand that it is not about them. It's not about them "being racist". You are not a racist if you use "master" as your main branch. That's not the point. It's about the other people interacting with your repository and your code. The point is: how do THEY feel?

As a "minority", I don't see any logic or usefulness in this change. Thankfully, github has accepted the views of the "other side" (the rational side) as well and have given people the choice of using master or main, which, ironically, you would have argued for as well - the choice - if you really did care about "minorities"). Get off your high horse - you don't represent me.
