    How can we make chess more diverse?

    Chess is a systematically segregated game. There is white on one side and black on another. They are virtually engaged in a race war.

    They are separate but equal, but since 1954 everyone knows that separate but equal is inherently unequal.

    What to do? We MUST make changes to the rules to create diversity in this white supremacist game (white moves first)!

    Let's decenter whiteness by letting black move first. Then, let's make up for systematic disparities by giving black an extra queen and not allowing white to castle.

    Finally, let's give black (and only black) the ability to use captured white pieces instead of only taking them out of the game.

    END WHITE SUPREMACY NOW!

    Should Knights only be black pieces? Should the white pieces be named "Daze"?

    I think that there should be a law that anyone within hearing of someone that says the word diverse should be required to slap them or face a 100 dollar fine. Once we have that law we should add more words & expand it.

    On a recent edition of "Bar Rescue," they showed a black owned and operated bar, filled with black customers and not a white in sight. The narrator called it 'diverse.'

    How can we make chess more diverse?
    #1. Pink Pawns, that, of course, can move in every direction.
    #2. Social Justice Knights that can move to any open square on the board.
    #3. Get rid of Bishops and replace them with Imams that move like Bishops, but, once per game, they can "Explode," destroying themselves and ALL other pieces on adjacent squares.
    #4. Change Rooks to Public Housing. If killed, the opposing player must sacrifice one of HIS pieces, so that his enemy can replace the Public Housing he just lost.
    #5. Kings and Queens will be interchangeable, of course. They can move in all directions, but the KING can not actually remove any other piece on the board. Only move and avoid.....

    And, of course, the board needs to be in all rainbow colors!

    Have a "pride" move where for one turn only a player's queen can dress in drag.

    You mean you would want a diverse collection of slap words?
