Did the Rifleman offer consistent subversive allegories about U.S. race relations and foreign policy?
I've no idea on that one.
The Rifleman did a lot of stories about tolerance and open-mindedness to those who were different, some featuring Hispanic characters. Sammy Davis Jr. also guest-starred on a couple of episodes, and I think his race was ignored completely.
