The world has gone nuts, you can't even be a cowboy in Wyoming anymore.

Guess we’ll see if the school is run by “Cowboys”. I’m glad I work in a profession that doesn’t deal with college graduates very often, or at least not very long at my level. Not sure I could handle all these cry babies. If a woman wears a cowboy hat what do we call it?

“If you’re not a white person, and especially if you’re an Indian, it would make you feel out of place -- it wouldn’t make you feel too good about yourself,” said Hutchinson, a member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe in Wyoming.

Weren't most cowboys black and Hispanic?

Me neither. I'm 36, hate the amount of computer usage I'm required to do for work, and I hate "progress." I miss SOME of the old ways, but I will say that I greatly appreciate the development of new, cleaner bathrooms in gas stations.

Except for the movies, those cowboys were white guys who made all the money. :lol:

I woke this morning confused on what I was going to be offended about and now I know. Anyone care to go to Wyoming and tear down that offensive statue of the fella abusing the horse?

Better setup a gofundme account to start getting funds to do something in the near possible future, with the intent to make a concerted effort towards action, in retrospect to current events in the surrounding Wyoming area, and current geopolitical effects this slogan maybe causing to oppressed minorities that live in the Wyoming area, or may have lived at one time in current post-modern/post-truth era, or at one time in the past, but not excluding any person(s), or peoples groups, or other proper nouns, that might be effected by said slogan in the near, or not so near future.

I really can't understand that kind of thinking, they knew it was Cowboys when they signed up and now they want to cry about it. There's a picture of that same cowboy on all the car license plates in Wyoming and on all the Welcome to Wild and Wonderful Wyoming signs when you cross the state line.

On I-25. Wyoming/Colorado border. I remember well the first time I saw it. I lived in Wyoming from 1980 to 1987. They are very proud of their tradition. Cheyenne Days is a must see - Granddaddy Of them All! No state in the nation captures the west like Wyoming. You can still see open range cattle drives.
