White hat:This white hat wears a black hat and has the skills of a black belt. Sgt. Cordell Walker, Texas Ranger, played by Chuck Norris, believes in the moralistic days of Old West lawmen. Despite his nostalgia for the past Walker is a modern leading man, using martial arts and his technology-packing sidekick Jimmy Trivette, played by Clarence Gilyard, to solve crimes and nab criminals.
Black hat: Walker faces one of televisions greatest, most pervasive black hats: injustice. Each episode lands the taciturn hero in the midst of bank-robbing scum bags, violent bounty hunters, skyjackers and even illegal adoption rings.
