While I'm sure that switching away from the use of words like "blacklist" will not do anything regarding racial equality, but since we're at it, can't we choose a less ambiguous alternative?

The current alternatives like "allowlist", "trusted list", "blocklist", "denylist" all have alternative connotations and can not be replaced one-to-one.

Therefore, I propose the terms "greenlist" and "redlist".
