Cut off the bare ends (if any), tape up or put heat-shrink over each individual wire to cover the ends and just tuck the bundle out of the way. Don't cut the wires short because you may want them some day.
There cannot, and never will be, any progress in society, vis-a-vis racism, so long as the concept of celebrating Diversity -- in it's current, politically-correct, deliberate, punitively extractive form -- continues.

Or stick an extra terminal strip under the hood and solder them (or screw them) to it, so that they go nowhere.
