Is the game of Chess racist and sexist?

The white side always moves first to start the game, which a distinct advantage.

And the Queen's main job is to protect the most valuable piece, the King.

Liberals and feminists are now upset with the patriarchy they say is inherent in the over 1,000 year old game, and want the rules changed to align with today's PC culture.

This isn't satire, but a real debate within the chess player community.

Liberals: *Want to make it legal to kill babies and enter the US illegally, ban conservative ideas from campus, and have white people give black people money for no reason* “Ugh. Why are you so oppressive? This board game offends me!!!”

@InvaderNice encouraging western women to abort babies while simultaneously funding campaigns to import third world children, the whole idea seems counter productive as all the "children" are in their 30s, cant teach an old dog new tricks..

white always goes first.. so yes? lol

white goes first because its defensive, while black is typically offensive first move means a defense can be set up before an attack can commence

but i guess the fact black is always offensive can be called racist as well..🤷‍♂️

It's [i] every[/i] piece's main job to protect the king. The queen is the strongest piece and the king is the weakest. I don't really give a rat's rectum, ijs

Why?? Why do people need to ask such asinine questions? It’s just a game, Mary Poppins was just a movie. For gods sake just stop!!
