Missing Chapter From America’s History Books
One In Four Of America’s Cowboys Were African-American
Many of the slaves in the 17th and 18th centuries were familiar with cattle herding from their homelands of West Africa. This brings historians the question of the name “Cowboy” and whether or not it was made from slave cow herders.
On some Texas trails, about a quarter of cowboys were black.
African American cowboys were largely African American freedmen after the Civil War who were drawn to cowboy life, in part because there was not quite as much discrimination in the west as in other areas of American society at the time. For enslaved Blacks the West offered freedom and refuge from the bonds of slavery. It also gave African Americans a chance at better earnings. . After the Civil War many were employed as horsebreakers and for other tasks, but few of them became ranch foremen or managers. Some black cowboys took up careers as rodeo performers or were hired as federal peace officers in Indian Territory. Others ultimately owned their own farms and ranches.
Hundreds of black cowboys were among the very first hands who drove huge herds along trails to Abilene, Kansas, the cattle-selling center of the Old West.  They were especially skilled in vetting horses. When herding cattle, many black riders rode “on point,” ahead of the dust. Black cowboys were forced to do the hardest work with cattle, such as bronco busting, they had special skills with breaking in steeds.

Fetishization of Lao women. Because we are “valued" for our: 

  • "Exotic" looks.
  • Supposedly traditional values. 
  • Docile and gentle mannerisms.
  • Very good with tasks such as cleaning, child-bearing, etc.
  • Because they think we won’t fight back. 

How can somebody, especially a foreigner (and even a Lao men), even try to understand a Lao woman as if she is a special specimen of an animal? Or how Lao women’s bodies (even Lao children) are used for the sex tourism industry, constantly violated and abused? And how half of tourists and expats that arrive in Laos only came for our women since their “American” ladies, etc. are too “unmanageable” and “newfangled”? Are we merely trophy wives? Your sex dolls? Your punching bags? We are not for sale. We are not for your disgusting fantasies
