    Don’t worry I’m sure the liberals will come out bashing this picture as well. Just look carefully at how racist this is, the white man sticks to the white colored side! Outrageous!

    “According to sources, the two men shared no meaningful conversation during the game and did not exchange names.”

    Wait!
    There is not nearly enough detail in the story.
    We demand a full rundown of the game, including but not limited to every strategic move of the game.

    Has come. I think this a beautiful concept, a Jew and non-Jew playing TOGETHER, yet against each other. People should understand the controversial part of this photo, yet develop a comprehension that is far more than just a photo.

    And in a similar vein...

    Well, if this picture can go viral, then so can this video of the Rebbe speaking in english with Mayor Dinkins go viral – about
    New York is a melting pot, there is no difference between us, only G-d over all.

    have som extra sheva mitzvos cards handy in your pocket so you can give them out when you get a chance (from experience -this is also a “segula” to bump in to some yiden and make some type of connection)

    Nice photo, but I’m disappointed that everyone’s making such a big deal out of it.

    forget about any racial stereotypes for a moment and just appreciate this photo at face value in its simplicity

    it is about life. and those precious moments that happen every day. kudos the the photographer for immortalizing this moment in history

    wow, what a sight – a Jew and a black guy playing chess together, and everyone’s gushing about it. Have you folks had no normal interactions with black people before?

    I don’t get it. Is it just an example of a simple moment that happens in life or is it “a moment in history?” the latter certainly isn’t a phrase used to describe a simple moment ‘that happens every day.’
