Is a Cowboys & Indians party insensitive?

Little Mason Disick (Kardashian) is so cute and his party looks like lots of fun. I guess I wonder a bit about a Cowboys & Indians themed party though. Does is seem politically incorrect?

Not a bit to me. Seems like a perfectly normal, fun theme for a kids party.

What a cute little guy he is! (Even though I am so not a fan of the Kardashians...)

I find nothing wrong with it. (Although I probably would have gone with Cowboys & Aliens! LOL) It doesn't seem to be mocking anything and that's where (to me) politically incorrect comes into play. And who cares about politics anyway, it's a kid's party. ;) Not like she was going out of her way to offend anyone. I think too much thought is put into things looking for political correctness.

I agree about too much thought being put into looking for political correctness, often I wind up being offended because I am on the wrong side of the politically correct spectrum, as a Christian.

I think it's a very cute party idea! There is so much you can do with it, that it's easy for the parents.

I guess if you have friends or family that are Native American, you might want to think about the theme. Other than that, I don't think there is anything wrong with it.

    I think someone, somewhere, is going to be offended no matter WHAT the party theme might be -- especially when it comes to the Kardashians.

    Cute party pictures!

    your are bound to offend someone somehow no matter what. However i don't think this was their intention.
