i was wondering one day after a game of chess why did with white pieces i moved first so i searched for it but got not much to know but i think it is more like a convention like why current flows in direction opposite to electron flow and no serious racism

i believe there are some set of rules that are made that is why white pieces always move first and there is no point whatsoever of racism involved in this and these are convention we must follow and not challenge them

You ignorant fool! The white chess pieces have oppressed and enslaved the black chess piece for over 400 games! Even after the great king chessingham lincoln supposedly freed the blacks, they were still slaves to the white piece. After the civil war between slave owning whites vs non slave owning whites, the 'SYSTEM' put the blacks down with the bishop crow laws stating that the white pieces always get to move first. Also, the term black is racist, call them dark wooden chess pieces, you know, just a bit more pc. Anyways, it is the institutionalized racism in chess that lets the white honky piece move first.

Having looked at the Official rules for chess there is no stated reason for White being chosen to go first, therefore it is only logical that unless given proof otherwise, it is just a rule. There doesnt have to be ulterior motives to it.

Reasons for voting decision: I honestly don't know what to make of this debate, but I gave Con conduct in spite of his forfeit because I found Pro's incendiary arguments to be even more distressing.
