I will NOT support any type of discrimination in chess


I will NOT support or donate to ANY chess organization (local, state, regional, national, or international, etc.) which blatantly discriminates against chess players just because of their genders, sexual orientations, disabilities, religions, general political beliefs, ratings, wealth (or lack thereof), or chess political affiliations, etc.

I am disgusted to see countless extraordinary people with incredible skills (which could greatly help our chess community) being blacklisted or thrown to the side because of one or more reasons above. In the mean time, I see incompetent and unqualified people being put in prominent positions because they suck up to the right people.

This is NOT my world of chess, and I have fought hard against it for 45+ years (since the 70's).
