    "Darkies loading cotton"

    Lol

    Seriously tho, the views of the cities before time was amazing. Boston was completely different, especially since the scene they chose in that spot is currently home of Logan international airport.

    Weird to think that Alaska and Hawaii weren't even states yet.

    At 4:40: "You'll want to linger at Memphis, Tennessee if you like the picture of darkies loadin' cotton on the riverboats and hummin' "Old Man River"."

    Fucking racist.
