They are all yellow. Lego's general avoidance of race full-stop (aside from franchise stuff) gives them a free hand IMO. It's not like the cowboys are realistic or anything (they're part of the Western theme, which is pure cowboys 'n' injuns rather than historical commentary). TBH if anything I laud their general refusal to go particularly PC.
