Whitesboro, New York, will officially change its town seal after many called it racist.
Critics of the seal, which appears to show a white man choking a Native American, say it celebrates violence against Native Americans. The seal got national attention after "The Daily Show" aired a segment about the town.
"Is that pioneer choking that Native American to death, or do I have something crazy in my eye?" asked Jessica Williams of "The Daily Show."
