Discrimination is at work

This 'discrimination' is 'still at work' in chess, badminton, cycling, car racing, trumpet playing, stamp collecting, model aeroplane building, and a million other activities. Our parents and our culture expose us to these things from a young age, in most cases. Parents spend thousands on getting their children the best coaching/instructors etc. They find opportunities and 'make it happen' for their kids, often with great sacrifice on the parent's side. If a parent cannot/does not do these things for a child, chances are that such a child will not ever partake at a high level in whatever activity is under discussion. Private tuition/coaching is expensive, and not a 'right' for anyone. Mostly it is this special attention that lifts the skills of an individual and ultimately gives him/her the advantage. How this is related to race is beyond comprehension. Unless it could be a cultural issue...kids tend to develop a passion for the things their parents are passionate about!
