Subject: RE: 19th century black cowboy rap
The figure of one-third is, in some books, inclusive of Blacks and Mexicans, in others Blacks alone. It would be possible, I suspect, to work out some percentages by going over the census records. In the meantime, I am glad that ALL of the cowboys are finally getting the recognition due them.
