Umm, no.  For example, the gem5 project (a computer architecture simulator
including estimated timing) has deprecated master/slave terminology for
port protocols.

The way I would put it is this: We swim in a sea of racism mostly not
realizing it, just as we move in air usually without thinking about it.
This is true for all people in our culture, no matter their ethnicity.
This small change make us more conscious of what is usually unconscious
or subconscious, and it does not cost us much to do it.
