University of Wyoming profs protest ‘Cowboys’ slogan

  • Several professors are urging the University of Wyoming to "shelve" its new marketing slogan, "The World Needs More Cowboys," because they feel it evokes the image of a "white, heterosexual male."
  • One professor acknowledged that the real history of cowboys "is more diverse than that racially, and presumably also for sexual orientation," but insisted that the slogan will make non-white students feel less welcome.

Perhaps Wyoming Cowperson or Cowpeople, not sure of the proper terminology, would be more acceptable in today's PC society. Those terms bring up an entirely different visual. Good lord, what is next? :facepalm:

I've known and seen Cowboys of all shapes and sizes, all racial heritages, most religious affiliations, urban and rural, but the best wear orange and black! Go Pokes!

Nothing says white male privilege, classism, land theft and displacement of Native Americans quite like "Boomer Sooner!"



Just sayin'. ;)

It has become apparent that many college professors need common sense training.

I really don't want to have to explain to my horse that he is now carrying a bovine technologist and he is the equine bovine gathering specialist, he might want to be compensated commiserate with his title.

How about educating the minorities about the history of Cowboys?

The article says it will make "non white" students feel unwelcome.

I honestly didn't know there were any non white people in Wyoming.
