    • Sorry that this perception persists. Many buffalo men, soldiers, settlers and especially trail drive drovers were black. The "Rawhide" image is all wrong, with blacks and latins probably outnumbering white cowboys. Check any decent historical account, and even some of the early census figures.

    • The 1870's...even though slavery was illegal, blacks were persecuted a lot. One of the prizefighters was black. Nobody seemed to treat him badly in any way. Nothing. That's great that the denizens of 1870's Dodge City weren't prejudiced, but is that perhaps anachronistic?
