    Whitey always goes first?

    Coincidence?

    Should the Chess federation change the rules so that Black can go first sometimes?

    Why is the board set up so that white is always right?

    Whitey also wins more than blacky

    https://www.quora.com/In-chess-what-is-the-percentage-of-white-more-likely-to-win-than-black

    White wins: 37.51%

    Game drawn: 34.88%

    Black Wins: 27.61%

    Removing draw games, total percentage white wins: 57.60%

    White is 9.9% more likely to win at the beginning of game (absent draws).

    If you must include draws, white is 4.95% more likely to win.

    I think chess is also sexist.

    I mean, why is it that the queen has to do all that work while the king just sits back and watches?

    In fact, how many women chess players are there?

    Duchy!! Help us!

    I play go (weiqi), a game of Chinese origin, where Black moves first.
    I have played with Michael Redmond, a Japanese pro 9-dan who's based in Tokyo.
    He's the best non-Asian (though he seems culturally Japanese) in the world.

    We all know that go is just a cheap copy of chess.

    Why are Asians about half of the top American chess players today?
    Wesley So, Hikaru Nakamura, Ray Robson, Jeff Xiong.
    There are many Asians among the top American junior players.

    That's nothing. Trump has a chess set that is orange verses black, where orange always dominates

    Sicko.

    Is it no wonder? After all, chess is for capitalists. Why else would the poor lowly pawns be sent out to be sacrificed and die for the other more powerful bourgeoisie pieces? Down with you rich bastards!

    I recommend that all left wingers denounce chess as a racist, capitalist, sexist game that must be destroyed forever!!!

    Did I mention the bishops? Why do we have religious folk in chess? It's because of the religious right if you ask me.

    How can any atheists here continue to participate in chess since it is obviously a game created by the KKK?

    Is it any wonder that the most important piece is the K?

    Right. He does virtually nothing, and is the biggest liability, yet the king is the most important piece?

    Makes no sense.
