Australia’s Public Broadcaster Asks: “Is Chess Racist?”

Because white team moves first.

Australia’s taxpayer funded public broadcaster ABC is facing ridicule after announcing it would host a debate asking if chess is racist because the white team traditionally gets to go first under the rules of the game.

A former member of the Australian Chess Federation discovered that the debate was set to take place when he was asked by a radio producer to take part.

“The ABC have taken the view that chess is RACIST given that white always goes first!” tweeted John Adams, adding, “Trust the taxpayer funded national broadcaster to apply ideological Marxist frameworks to anything and everything in Australia!”

Furious Australians took to Twitter to express outrage that ABC was wasting money and time on such an irrelevant question.

“People want the national broadcaster to focus on bigger issues,” said one. “People are struggling with the economy, with their health, with the lockdown. They don’t want their money wasted on bullshit.”

However, Australian chess expert Kevin Bonham said he would be taking part in the debate, which is set to happen today.

It turns out that the white team going first has absolutely nothing to do with “racism” and 5 minutes of cursory research would have confirmed this fact.

The pieces were dyed either white or black because they were the most available colors at the time when the game was invented in northwest India.

The rule that white moves first was part of an effort to standardize chess for international competition purposes in the 19th century and has literally nothing to do with race.

But we live in 2020, and everything is potentially racist if there’s power or social media clout to be gained.

UK Police Chief Says Authorities Need to Stop ‘Wasting Time’ Investigating People Being Offended

Public is sick of it.

The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police has asserted that authorities need to stop ‘wasting time’ investigating people being offended on social media, noting that the public is sick of it.

Chief Constable Stephen Watson made the comments during an interview with the Telegraph.

Watson acknowledged that Greater Manchester Police had “become too assiduous at interpreting some of the rules to mean that if anybody at any time for whatever reason is offended, there somehow needs to be a police record.”

“We’ve got ourselves involved in stuff which is just not a policing matter, we’ve wasted our time as a result and we’ve caused people to question whether, frankly, we know what we’re doing,” the senior officer added.

Likely next Prime Minister Liz Truss has also vowed to put a stop to police investigating social media posts.

However, despite the College of Policing issuing guidance that officers need to focus on real crimes and not interfering in “debates on Twitter,” the practice still continues.

As we highlighted yesterday, a British Army veteran was arrested by police in Aldershot for re-posting a meme on Facebook critical of the LGBT community.

51-year-old Darren Brady was placed in handcuffs by Hampshire Police after being told he had caused someone “anxiety” online.

People in the UK are routinely arrested for posting ‘offensive’ tweets and other social media content.

Former police officer James Watts was arrested and given 20 weeks in prison for the ‘crime’ of posting offensive George Floyd memes in private WhatsApp and Facebook group chats.

Meanwhile, car thefts have effectively been legalized in major cities and police say they don’t even have time to investigate two out of three burglaries.
