The first hip-hop chess portal

From Techdigest:
...And yes, it's called WuChess.com - and it's your place to meet like-minded chess players who are also into the lyrical poetry that is RZA's solo work and his occasional Wu Tang output. Here's how they describe it:

"WuChess is a new online chess + hip-hop community that will offer live game play, chat rooms, tournaments, lessons and exhibitions featuring RZA and special guests."

Conservative estimates conducted by me, just now, put the demographic crossover of Wu Tang-loving chess players at approximately six people on the face of the planet. But you never know...

Maybe you need to do some research before downing what is obviously a positive force for kids. Here's some links...

Fact is, these guys are going to reach inner city kids that YOU will NEVER have a shot at helping. Why? R-E-S-P-E-C-T

I see nothing bad in Techdigest's text. Those who click on WuChess link will learn that portal already has 3000 registrations.

Best downing would be to ignore the movement, no?
