Chess master blasts the ABC for 'wasting taxpayer money' in debate about whether the game is racist

A former member of the Australian Chess Federation has blasted the ABC for preparing to hold a debate about whether the game is racist.

John Adams, 38, claims a radio producer from the publicly-funded broadcaster phoned to ask if he would take part in Wednesday's discussion focusing on why the white side always gets to go first under the rules of the strategy game.

Astonished by the request, Mr Adams took to Twitter shortly after to scold the ABC for wasting taxpayer's money on 'irrelevant topics!'
