For the allegory to work perhaps a white king and black pawns would have sold the concept better, unless I'm out in left field and missing the point.


I think what Barry is trying to say is that your chess set is cheap and also he's a racist. :P

I was going to say this is an impossible position, but it's not. black could have had a piece on c8, which was captured by the pawn on d7. If the pawn promotes to Queen or Rook, it's checkmate. If black has no other piece, and the pawn promotes to Bishop or Knight, the king can't move, and it's a Stalemate, a draw.
