There is not a lot the IT community can do to help systematic racism. One thing we did notice is that the term blacklist can be construed as black being bad. Whitelists also add to the contrast of color having a value of being better or worse. Whitelist good, blacklist bad for example.
It's a little thing, but we will be changing all connection to the term blacklist to the new term blocklist.
We will be updating our documentation and training the team on the new verbiage.
