Wyoming Cowboys Racists?

Recommended Posts

Why would it be racist to celebrate the contributions the Spanish, Mexicans and Indians have made to one of the shittier aspects of American popular culture?

Well done OP. There should be at least two threads about this.

We might also want to open one on the recruiting board and discuss how this might affect out-of-state recruiting for Wyoming.

I can tell you that effect; Wyoming is going to have much less success with recruting female players to the Football Team, due to such a RACIST, SEXIST mascot!

It may be sexist but about 25% of cowboys were black so the racist part probably doesn't apply.  Many cowboys in the mid to late 1860's were not heroes anyway (Billy the Kid and the likes of the Lincoln County War come to mind).

WTF? Ranching has been a way of life in the west since the Spanish arrived in 1598. I grew up on a small ranch in New Mexico and to this day I consider myself two things, a Marine and a cowboy. It's a hard life, but calling it one of the shittier aspects of American culture is ludicrous.

Real cowboys are totally different than the cosplay cowboys you see a lot of places, I think that's what he was referring to
