Chess is a White man's game. By mastering it, all these kids have accomplished is excelling in a game they did not invent. If Blacks want to do something impressive, invent their own version of Chess which is separate and distinct from the White man's version.

The trouble with Negroes is that they can only "mimic" Whites. A handful of them can excel at games the White man invented. But the Chinese have their own unique version of Chess, called Go, which is totally distinct from the White man's game.

In other words, what these boys have accomplished is only "half successful." They've mastered the game of another race. Now the challenge is to create their own game, distinct from what the White man created. Until Blacks do this we will remain pathetic followers, mimicking more successful groups.

As the old saying goes..........history is written by the winners. Since the White man won, he gets to decide who invented Chess and who didn't. Even if Africans did invent Chess(extremely doubtful) since the White man won then Africans will never be given credit for it.

You do know that chess originated in India, right... And then expanded in the middle east.

What we do know is that it originated in India, during the Gupta empire,where its early form in the 6th century was known as chatura&#7749;ga, which translates as "four divisions (of the military)": infantry, cavalry, elephantry, and chariotry, represented by the pieces that evolved into the modern pawn, knight, bishop, and rook.

Chess was invented in China, not India. Chinese Chess is known to be about 5000 years old. The version that came out of India dates from around 700 A.D. or so.
