The Bronze Cowboy and the Helpless Ranch Girl
On June 24, 2003 Herbert Jeffries, the Bronze Buckaroo, a 91 year old American of Color, sang at the White House birthday party of President George W. Bush. After his performance, the President gave him a standing ovation, and in Jeffries’ words, “Bush bolted onto the stage during the ovation and hugged me.”
Jeffries also said, “I’m not a Republican, but decided to accept him because whether you like your Captain or not, you are on the boat and going where he takes you.”
After the President’s birthday party was finished Jeffries was escorted to another room to have a formal photo taken with the President, and as Jeffries walked up to President Bush the President looked at Jeffries, smiled and reached out and kissed him on the cheek. A startled Jeffries asked if he could kiss the President in return, and the President grinned and answered, “Sure!”
Jeffries, who years earlier owned a successful nightclub in Paris, gently kissed President George W. Bush on each cheek before turning to smile for the official photo with the President. Sometimes I long for the days when folk of liberal thought and folk of conservative thought were not blood-enemies but rather men and women of good-will with differing opinions . . . . sigh.
In this cowboy western the man who performed for many years with the Great Duke Ellington Orchestra rides into Texas with his buddies to help rancher buddie Joe Jackson. It seems that Joe’s papa was shot in the back, and now Joe and his sister Betty are being persecuted by neighboring rancher Buck Thorne, who wants to buy their ranch for some mysterious reason.
When the Bronze Buckaroo and his pals get to the ranch they discover that Betty’s brother is missing, and it will be up to the Bronze Buckaroo and his buddies to get to the bottom of the trouble and save the ranch for young and beautiful Betty Jackson. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
