Would you rather be black or white?

    I have a friend (with an 1800ish) rating who only likes to play black. when I asked him why he never played white, he said it is better to play black because he can pounce on white's flaws. I wonder what you rather be. If you had to play a game for your life, would you be black or white? And if you would not mind explaining why that would be great! Thank you all! :)

    I like both black and white people. I was born white but am not to be blamed for that.

    Well at least I'm the world's best (or largest) at something.  You're what?  Some kind of milk?

    Who's a paedophile?  That was a quote from a chessplayer I posted.  The author didn't care about being black or white.  The miracle was a combinational gem he pulled to upset a higher rated opponent.

    The text silhouette is of that same chess master about to take his seat at the board.

    According to my stats here i win 57% of the time with white and 52% of the time with black. I prefer winning 57% of the time. I always feel much more comfortable in a game when i have white. I prefer d4 games and with white i can make sure it starts that way.

    Would you rather be black or white?

    It makes no difference to me. At another chess website I used to visit some uncivilized chessplayers would abort games when they were given the black pieces. I understand that would get a person in trouble at chess.com, which is another reason I love chess.com.

    I think those stats would be only for people who pay extra instead of having a free chess.com account because I can't find out how to get that.
