74% of Whitesboro voters support racism

The voters of Whitesboro, New York, have declared, 157 to 55, that keeping a racist town logo is what they want. I guess they need to honor their long history of racism.

Whitesboro residents voted Monday night to keep the village's controversial seal, rather than replace it with a new image.

Of 212 votes cast, 157 of them were in favor of retaining the current seal.

It was an informal vote, and village officials say they will discuss the results Tuesday night.

Whitesboro Mayor Patrick O'Connor said he wasn't entirely surprised by the vote results as numerous residents had been calling the village offices asking why the village was holding a vote in the first place.
