The chess rule that white moves first is racist 

Oh, Jeebus.

Never mind that the game of chess was thought to have been invented in Persia or India. Never mind that Maurice Ashley is one of the chess world's most respected commentators and has never given the rule any thought. It's clearly just another way of reinforcing the thought that blacks are inferior.

Why some people identify themselves entirely by the color of their skin is beyond me.
