What is next, attack the jing/jang colors or renaming the night from 
black to colorless?

I think this black/white or master/slave thing is blowing things out of 
Humans have all kind of colors, including colorless and white. And when 
I think of master/slave, it is just a principle - something is 
controlling something else. That there was a period where white people 
controlled the fate of "black" people is a colorless period in human 
history. Which should not be forgotten, but remembered as a period with 
lots of wrong doing to other human beings.

I understand that white people should not talk about "negros" or the 
like, but colorless people think they can still us this awful word. Now, 
who is dictating who? Don't do/say things you would not have it from 
others to yourself.

Black is not negative by definition, it is what your mind associate it with.
