Racist games?

A devoted chess player named Bill Ware believe chess as it is currently played is racist and wants to change the rules to eliminate it, according to the Southern Digest, the student newspaper at Southern University in Baton Rouge, La.

Ware says the fact that white moves first and black is forced to play defense "states that white is better than black" and represents a form of racism.

His solution is Algebra Chess, in which the white and black pieces are replaced by pieces of different colors and the determining factor on who moves first depends on what square the queen sits on.
