Rockbox *might* being said being a political project. But until the
developers do so it simply isn't.

if you want to see your life bad and brutal -- try so and you will see
it this way. If you want to see some word being aggressive and racism
-- do so and it will be this for you. If you want to hear one word in
a different context than it is in -- you will hear it this way. This
is psychology. Words don't mean anything besides the meaning you put
into them.
Responsibility also means tolerance. I have also things that pisses me
off just because it's history and I'm not affected with it -- but
people keep confronting me with that stuff. I have better things to do
than to comply all time and piss people off.

If you're that offended by *one* word go ahead and build your own
version of Rockbox. It's open source, you can do so. Maintain a
"non-offensive"-patch. Maintain your "cleaned" build. Or stick to the
original firmware of your player and abandon Rockbox. Whatever. Nobody
forces you to use Rockbox or even like it.

I agree absolutely with this. Stop with your silly arguing. This won't
change anyone's mind but only piss people off.
