Whitesboro Caves

     In another victory for political correctness, the Village of Whitesboro has announced it will scrap the village seal called racist because it seems to depict a white settler choking an Indian.
     After national television began making fun of the Village, an informal survey was done and residents seemed to reject change, but the Mayor and village board have pledged to sit down with local Indians to come up with a logo more agreeable to all.
    Whatever they choose, I hope they come up with something that doesn't look like it was drawn by a five year old.

thank you Jeff for putting this on your blog. i agree with you. imagine if the drawing was the other way around and the indian was choking the white guy. do you think white people would be complaining about it? hardly. besides, it’s in the history books, the indian guy got his ass kicked fair and square. again, thank you for not caving in to the politically correct libtard agenda. your very brave.GO TRUMP!!!!

replaced "called" with "which is" and "seems to depict" with "depicts". this isn't hard.

Legend has it, Donald J. Trump’s great, great, Grandfather Adolph J. Trumpenstein drew it when he was in his late 60’s.

Cool.

As a partial Native American I can assure you that I am not offended by a piece of folk art that depicts a sporting match between native and newcomers . Get over it whitey .

This symbol is both amateurish and a poor design concept .

As an aside ,Any proud former " Whitesboro Warrior " would be eager to see the current Warriors kick Watertown's butt again in football tho just to reinforce their dominance in Section 3 😎 Score last fall : Whitesboro 35 , watertown 6

Replacing it puts the realities of the past out of sight, out of mind and therefore it did not happen. Seems consistent with many other events that did, did not?? happen.

You can't even use the term call a spade a spade anymore.

Merry time of the year season!

I think they should show the next scene of the battle where the Native American flips the pilgrim over and scalps him

pretty crappy seal,but if you look at it,you can't tell if the frontier guy has his hand on the Indian's shoulder or throat,whoever made up the the choking thing is reading their own scared little judgement into it.

I think all the news coverage about Black discrimination as well as Indians has caused too many people to treat these individuals as "different. We have to "watch what we say" and how we act toward everyone. Should we all take "remedial courses OF behavior modification?
Ask Watertown's Italians how THEY came to be respected. It was not by TV Seven's noting bad behavior of Presbyterians or WASPS during the fifties and sixties. It was because they EARNED the respect of everyone. Why can't the same happen with any one of the "discriminated"? Because they want it to happen RIGHT NOW! Not earn it but DEMAND IT!

I don't understand why the WDT and newsjunky only show pictures of non-whites being arrested. Come on, lets get some diversity in the mix.

5:32, as a Native American you must be related to that fake Indian from Massachusetts, Lizzy Warren. I always wonder about them MA voters. They must be some serious golfers.
