Bevin said chess was "not something you necessarily would’ve thought of, when you thought of this part of town."
The governor has since received backlash on social media for that comment.
All kids have incredible minds!

Wow. Classism and racism at one time. Time for some self reflection, I think, on how abhorrent statements like this are.
