RACISM IN CHESS. White moves first

oregonpatzer

The game of Go must also be racist, because Black plays the first stone.  In Bridge, West always makes the opening lead.  In backgammon, an Omar Sharif-looking guy from that part of the world always ends up taking money from people from my part of the world, which is why I don't play backgammon for money.

Well, I think white and black are not really people who physically are white or black, it is simply their uniforms and what they are wearing. I think the reason white starts first is because of the ranks, because white controls the first and second ranks at the beginning of the game it makes more sense for them to go first. There is no advantage in being white or black, anyway. Nobody judges a player for playing black, or say that a person would lose because they are playing black. If they do, it's just stupid.

Yes. How racist that the white horses and castles get the advantage. So much racism among animals and inanimate objects. I'm glad we is so smart on this here webpage.

Oh, so the people who don't think it's racist are not smart, then?

And then for all of you sexist a-holes claiming chess pushes masculine power and that women are weak - I'll bet you $1000 per game - Time control 5 minutes, I will gladly take Black and let you go first every game!

 

The catch?  I get Black's starting position.  You get all White male pieces and must play without any female pieces!  You also can never promote to anything female!

Ok, but you aren't allowed to play with male pieces

Oops, looks like I already won. You don't have a king. GG. Want a rematch?
