Edit
Trivia Some have postulated that Bass Reeves was an inspiration for The Lone Ranger, the fictional (white) hero who was first created in the 1930s for a long-running radio serial and who continued via popular TV shows, movies, and comic books. This notion was largely promulgated by a single historian, Art T. Burton; in his Reeves biography "Black Gun, Silver Star," Burton wrote, "Bass Reeves is the closest real person to resemble the Lone Ranger" and listed a number of similarities between the real-life Reeves and the Lone Ranger character. However, many other historians have since argued that the similarities between them are too generalized and circumstantial to authoritatively state that the Lone Ranger was definitively based on Reeves. For example, a 2019 Texas Monthly article by Sean O'Neal says that Burton's argument rested on only a few similarities, but "it remains pure speculation; there's never been any conclusive evidence linking the two." O'Neal also argued that the insistence on a possibly spurious folk linkage between Reeves and Bass also serves to "eclipse" Reeves's real-life accomplishments "by the tall tales of an imaginary white man."
