Thank God too because look how boring all those Western TV shows and movies would be if it was all nice and ****.
In reality, I doubt the West was quite like how they show us in Hollywood. I read somewhere that many on the Plains or West were black cowboys(Maybe 25%) but you never see that in the movies or shows.
