I'd totally submit that red/black trees while in no way racist, are a
horrible indirection, as it means nothing if you've never interacted
with gambling culture, (and maybe James Bond movies).

left/right trees make naturally more sense and translate into more
languages, so yes I think removal of color naming is a good thing even
for non-racist reasonings.
