Kasparov replied to a radio station calling chess a racist sport: Summer sports: Lenta.ru

-

The Sydney radio station of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) called chess a racist sport and received a response from Russian grandmaster Garry Kasparov. The discussion is available on the chess player’s Twitter.

ABC called the manifestation of racism the fact that in chess, according to the rules, white pieces go first. Kasparov advised those unhappy to choose another occupation. “If you are worried that the game of chess is racist – please take it – there Black goes first. Better to do it than look stupid, ”he said.

Kasparova was supported by former Australian chess player John Adams. “It’s nice to see that ex-world chess champion Kasparov kicked ABC because of their independent coverage of the game of chess. Common sense prevails, ”he thought.

Since the end of May, mass protests have been taking place in dozens of US cities, as well as in Europe and Australia, accompanied by riots and clashes with the police over the death of African American George Floyd. Protesters blame police and racist prejudices in society for the incident.

Kasparov is the 13th world chess champion. He held the title of the strongest chess player on the planet from 1985 to 1993.
