You still seem to be forgetting that little thing called context. For
all we know, this genre isn't even derived from that word. Either way,
noone was being offensive or oppressive. Noone called you anything, stop
acting like you were being attacked.

Stupid political correctness is not the answer to racism - tolerance is.
You don't seem very tolerant.

Right, back on topic.

I still don't see why we whould remove a genre from a list of de-facto
standard genres that EVERY other program out there recognises. If you
don't like the name, don't use it. I sure won't. Now if this was some
Rockbox-only addition, I might just agree, but this is not something I
invented.
