LOL. I cannot even tell the race of most of the people in that video. It is a random two minute video of the French Quarter area in the 1930s, there are various possible reasons you do not see Black people.

Thanks for the interesting video.

Structurally the Quarter hasn't changed much. Loved seeing people dressed up and the old cars.

Everyone looks white, it would be easy to distinguish dark colored people from white people around them. I actually think I saw a couple early in the video.

What reasons? I'm not trying to incite some race war, just curious. It looks like Idaho in that video.

I can't tell. Many of the people are hard to really distinguish but, yes, the ones that I can tell do appear to be mostly White. It's not really surprising that the video is mostly White people, at least to me.
