The "real life" dilemma arrived today when I wanted to write a note on a problem showing "pickaninny". For me, until reading this discussion it was a meaningless term which I guessed had something to do with the color black. Now, learning the meaning of this term, I simply could not write it down. I wrote "BP4 (black pawn 4, what we used to call Pickaninny)" as an explanation must be given.
The point that most composers/solvers have no idea what it means is true. However, when faced with the knowledge the answer became clear for me.

AIs by Youtube and Twitter have detected that chess is fundamentally racist.
So in the future you are only allowed to use neutral pieces, I assume.

In case the link above ever disappears:
