Re: a new Western as a TV episodic series? discuss

The outlaw is a old concept legally and culturally. Those tropes and myths predate the Western, Jesse James and the Civil War. I'd have to see more imformation be for I could call the motivations racist. Jesse James fought the Confedrates, the Confederates were racists there fore the motivations behind the promotion of the Jesse James mythology ( and all Westerns) is racially motivated seems specious.
