NY Town Rethinks Seal Showing White Man Strangling A Native American

Most town seals seek to celebrate the best of the community. Whitesboro, a New York upstate village, went a different route, suffice to say, by channeling the glory days of slaughtering Native Americans.

The town's seal depicts a heroic white settler in the midst of his holy conquest — strangling locals, grabbing their lands and relegating them to second-class citizens.

The controversial seal, which dates back to 1883, propelled legions of social media warriors in action after an online users posted the image on Internet.
