Computer Terminology is Rascist?

The story being reported by reason.com, here is so unbelievable I read it 3 times. According to the story some idiot in LA county California is stating the terms master/slave used in relation to computers is potentially to be considered derogatory and should be removed or he hints that LA will no longer purchase from vendors using the terms.
