KAUSTUBH TALATHI started this petition to Attorney General Kamala Harris and

The petition is to ban and remove usage of words "whitelist" and "blacklist" in all the industries. Instead we can use substitutes like "accepted", "denied", "red", "blue" lists. This is just a small step in eradicating the inequalities which are faced by colored community on daily basis.

Below are the dictionary meanings of both the words. They are used a lot in all the  industries to refer to a list of accepted or disapproved items/people.

whitelist: a list of approved or favored items.
