Real estate agents across the United Kingdom and some in the US will be banning the term “Master Bedroom” over it’s “racist connotations” as Black Lives Matter protests continue across the country.
Instead, homebuyers – who according to radical Marxists one should not even be allowed to own property – will be given tours of the “primary” or “principle” rooms, as agents are worried they’ll offend their Millennial customer base.
The Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) announced last week that they are removing the word “master” from certain bedrooms and bathrooms over its link to slavery as Black Lives Matter protests continue across the country.
“The MLS Advisory Group regularly reviews the terms and fields used in the MLS to make sure they are consistent with the current market environment. The updates to primary bedroom and primary bath were among nine requests for review that were submitted by members and considered at the most recent meetings, including an option to show whether the property has an electric vehicle charging station and what direction the balcony faces for high rise listings,” HARS wrote in a statement about the changes.
Peter Wetherell, executive chairman of Wetherell -UK based -, an estate agent in Mayfair told The Times:
“These changes are being driven by political correctness and dramatic transformations in the buyer demographic across prime central London,” he said.
“The typical buyers are now aged from their early twenties to their mid-forties and from all over the world. This young demographic tends to be very broad-minded and find any form of sexism or racism deeply offensive,” Wetherell added.
Breitbart News reported:
David Westgate, the group chief executive of the Bristol-based estate agent chain, Andrews, said that they are considering the nomenclature shift as well, saying “the sentiment behind the Black Lives Matter campaign has helped us all be more aware of our behaviour. We can all do more to make sure people are treated with respect.”
“The word master does carry historically racist undertones,” said the director of Benham and Reeves estate agents in London, Marc von Grundherr, adding that the company is considering a ban on the phrase in order to prevent offense being taken from clients.
