New Whitesboro seal, just in time!

new whitesboro seal

So apparently some people think the official seal of Whitesboro, NY is offensive because it depicts a white European settler choking out a Native American, and that’s not something one should include or endorse. I don’t know much about Whitesboro, but I’m guessing they’ve got some blood on their hands otherwise it might not be as much of an issue. I decided to help out and make a new seal for the town, just to change it up a bit and maybe smooth things over with the remaining indigenous people. (all three of them)

I figured I’d keep things in the same genre while removing the racially charged imagery, balance the original spirit of the official seal with sensitivity to ethnic and racial tensions. It wouldn’t make sense to just change it to the McDonald’s logo, or Darth Vader, although that would be bad ass. I’m waiting for a city or town to actually do that at some point; sell the advertising space on the official seal to a marketing firm and bring in revenue that could go to needy schools or fixing dilapidated motorways. Anyway, let me know what you think of the logo in the comments below, and feel free to pass it on to as many people as you like.
