ABC [Australian Broadcasting Company] Slammed For Suggesting ‘Chess Is Racist’ Because White Always Goes First

Newspunch.com; June 24, 2020 Baxter Dmitry News, World

 

Chess is inherently “racist” because the white pieces always have the first move, according to completely ridiculous suggestions by an ABC [Australian Broadcasting Company ] radio station.

Chess grandmasters and former world champions immediately slammed the ABC, describing the idea that chess is “racist” as “completely ridiculous” and an example of Marxist liberal thinking that is tearing society apart.

After an Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Sydney radio station posed the question that the game of chess may be racist, Russian chess grandmaster and former world champion Garry Kasparov and former Australian chess representative John Adams took to Twitter to slam the notion, calling it “bulls**t” and an example of cultural Marxism gone mad.

JPost report: Adams noted that ABC contacted him to make a comment on the segment, which is intended to run Wednesday.

“Then they said with everything going on, they wanted to have a conversation about white going first (in chess) – and the racial context of whether white should go first. I said I’m no longer involved but I passed them along to another person.”

 

After dismissing the request to speak on the radio show, Adams took to Twitter to voice his opinions.

“The ABC have taken the view that chess is RACIST given that white always go first,” Adams wrote on Twitter. “Trust the taxpayer funded national broadcaster to apply ideological Marxist frameworks to anything & everything in Australia!“

“With all the drama resulting from COVID-19, I am amazed that the ABC is broadcasting on irrelevant topics!“

When I think they can't be more stupid, they see that as a challenge.

Chess has been around for centuries. Invented by Indians and Persians. 

This is stupid.

Don’t forget the “white wash.” That’s when whiteness just gets blanketed over everything.

So, are they going to remove all of the white keys from all pianos/keyboards?

All of the white dots on dominoes too?

All of the white faces of Kings, Queens and Jacks from all playing cards?

This has become insane.

I know white is divisive because all those white dots on the highway divides the lanes.

The people driving this have nothing but time on their hands. Their entire life is 24/7/365 looking for ways to be offended. I’m sure they don’t need any help finding things to scream “RACIST” at.

It's amazing that systemic racism and white oppression/aggression goes so far back, to where the brown people who invented the game felt obligated to inject racism and a white advantage into it.

My new fear is that they'll turn their hate on shaved heads on white guys, as I've been shaving my head for 20+ years.  In order to keep our jobs, we'll have grooming standards flipped upside down to where no hair on a white man can be 'X' length short.  It's a little silly, but it is no longer such a crazy idea to entertain as being possible in the near future. 

 

They can pry my hair clippers from my cold dead hands...

Saddest of all - There was a time in living memory when this would've been a great basis for a funny sketch on a comedy show like SCTV, Monty Python, SNL, or whatever. "Chess is racist because white goes first!" Imagine the ensuing hilarity, LOL.

Nowadays? It's not even mildly surprising that there are actual people out there stupid enough to think it's a "valid point".

I can't decide whether to laugh or cry.

:(

Not sure, but I'm sure it includes the c-word given how frequently they say it :D

My mom, God rest her soul, worked in inner city hospitals for nearly 40 years.  Oh the stories*....  

But anyway there was this one nurse (black woman) who had the racial chip on her shoulder, and was going off one day at the nurse's station to anyone within earshot.  Once my mom finished her charting, and before she went to administer meds to the patients, she leaned over to this whiner, and asked:  "Do you like my perfume?"

The grumbling nurse stopped grumbling for a moment and replied in the affirmative: "Why yes, I do."

To which my mom replied. "It's called White Shoulders", and walked away.  :D

 

 

*My mom worked in Chester, PA (I can hear the gasping from those who know of the place), and Phila.  My grandmother worked as a hospital administrator in Phila.  I'd say "you wouldn't believe the tales they told", but you folks would. They're the type of experiences that little rich trust-fund brats would never believe take place.

As much as I like Aussies and their colorful expressions, the word is always off-putting. In other "FFS News", even footy players are kneeling.
