Why are the *Caucasian American* pieces and the *African American* pieces all segregated? Clear racism!

If only we could be as upfront about inequity in the real world as we can be here about chess, amirite?

Your nuts are racist. Tell the truth. They go up and in you when a black Knight gets close to your Queen.

That's true for a lot of casual games, but more competitive games institute measures to counterbalance that. Go, for example, awards extra points to the player that moves second. Chess tournaments often do a best-of series, with players alternating colors. Also, a draw for black is often considered the equivalent to a win for white.

Games in general are not fair, not because of the rules, but because the players are either born with superior genes, or are alot better at getting away with chemical cheating.

Chess is the most non-inclusive game ever. Where are the latino pieces? Where are the asian pieces? Where are the middle eastern pieces? We should institute an affirmative action program to correct for this lack of diversity.

I don't think it is male bigotry. The queen is the most powerful piece, making it sexist against men?

However, you kill horses in it, so it is cruelty to animals.

I know right?

I suggest we give latinos 7 opportunities to make 2 more moves against a white opponent. It isn't reverse racism, because latinos are already at a disadvantage of being offended for there only being white and black pieces. We should also let the black pieces go first.

We will have to employ experts to determine who is more privileged so we can handicap them appropriately.
