Re The Cowboy Code And The New California, by Joe Guzzardi
Here's one more fact about Roy and Dale that needs to be out there. When I was a kid in Chicago in the late 50's, Roy, Trigger, Dale and Buttermilk, and Bullett all came to march in the Bud Billiken Parade. The Bud Billiken Parade is a traditional parade held in the black community. It did not take an act of Congress or Affirmative Action to get Roy and Dale there. They came because we were kids that loved them.
Roy and Dale also practiced the Cowboy Code. I forget which number it is, [VDARE.COM note: #5] but it says you cannot be prejudiced. And Roy and Dale weren't.
Just good Americans. Thank You.
