..consider the racial implications
. Before you kill my queen, perhaps you should contemplate just what you're about to do
. Are you taking her out simply because she is white
? Is that what it is, do you get some sort of thrill out of killing all the pieces of this game that is my life right now
simply because you think your blackness makes you superior
? Well, let me tell you, I don't think it's right. You've destroyed half of the key participants
, I can't even recover now.. and you just line their bodies alongside the board
, discarding them as if you couldn't care less
. I saw the smile of satisfaction on your face as you killed them all, that smug grin
Chess is a very racist
game. Black vs. White
, White *always* goes first
, both are against eachother strategically destroying the opposition. Why, I ask, are the pieces generally black and white? Why doesn't black go first?
And why, oh why did my white queen die for her people whilst your black queen
was made out to look like this amazing figure of supreme royalty
? I crave a chess world where all pieces are equal
and live in harmony
Why can't my pawns play with your pawns?
Why can't my rook move onto the same space as yours? And why, please tell me, why do you seem so intent
on destroying that which I've worked so hard to preserve? I desire unity
.. and so, I propose this..
Instead of trying to systematically destroy
pieces that are a different colour than your own, simply pick the opponents piece up and kiss it tenderly
. Place it next to one of your pawns, or better yet, let it visit with your queen without fear of being slaughtered
unnecessarily. Consider letting your king and queen swing
with the other king and queen! You don't always have to win, it's alright to remain neutral
. Instead of becoming frustrated over an unfair, racially biased game of chess, put your pieces into a little doll house
and create relationships between the two different groups. It's okay to do this
, it really, really is.
Actually.. I don't think this way at all, but I do wonder if any PC freak
has ever noted these possible racial discrepancies. If they haven't, I think it will happen one day. That will also be the day that I become a happy recluse
