"WhiteList" and "BlackList" naming practice - cx1 - 02-05-2021

Hi,

Great job on Ventoy! It is a great utility and works wonderfully well.

Be aware of a potential issue with naming lists of images that are permitted "white-lists," and those that are not permitted "black-lists." This legacy naming convention has been raised by certain community activists as insensitive to certain ethnic and racially identified groups.

A common workaround is to refer to "allow-lists" in place of "white-lists," and "block-lists" in place of "black-lists".

Best regards.
