Whitesboro to Decide on Seal


    The Mohawk Valley has a long Native American tradition and one legacy of the initial meeting of settlers and Indians is the Seal of the Village of Whitesboro.
     It depicts a white settler apparently in conflict with an Indian, and critics say it denigrates the latter.
    Village residents will vote on the seal Monday. What do you think ?

Instead of calling this a "conflict" between an Indian and a settler, call it two gay guys starting to get to know one another. Then all the PC worshippers will sing a song and head home. It's all about packaging, per se.

That is a strange looking seal. Surprising with all the PC-BS catching on lately it took so long. Should have a captioning contest instead, that would come up with some good ones.

What about the name itself? WHITESborow? The white settler looks androgynous to me. A little too curvy at the hips and plump in the thighs for a man. Plus the long hair with no beard facial hair. If it were not for the lack of facial hair I would say it could be an ancestor of the Oxbow women.
Also looks like the hands on both dancers are a little too low to strangle anything.

We stole their land fair and square. We are the winners here so we get to decide what the official seal is!
