Whitesboro: Wretched Hive of Genocidal Racism. Or Not.

Thinks aren't looking good for Whitesboro:

Of all things, the Whitesboro coat of arms caught my attention, because, more than anything, it strikes me as racist. There’s a stiffness to rampant political correctness; I get that, but still, for a town named WHITESboro, do they really need, as their official seal — the mark of the town that’s featured prominently on official letterhead and town signage — a white guy choking a Native American?

Of course, as my comment demonstrates, things aren't always what they appear to be. If you want the rest of the story, including the tale of a lawsuit filed against Whitesboro for the exact same charge of "racism", head over here.
