I can see changing the lyrics from 'dirty red skinned devils' to 'dirty shrieking devils', sort of, but it's still a very obvious racial comment. But the changing of 'their whole disgusting race is like a curse' to 'here's what you get when races are diverse' is not really any better of a change. If anything both statements are equal with being horrible and racist only the second statement includes all races as being bad and we shouldn't try to intermingle with any non-white people at all.

I am just very confused on who would go to these lengths to record over the original lines with new ones that are not any less awful.
I didn't realize they did that with Pocahotas but I knew it was done with Aladdin.

In the song 'Arabian Nights' it originally was:
Quote:
Oh, I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam.
Where they cut off your ear
If they donít like your face

Itís barbaric, but hey, itís home.
It was later changed to:
Quote:
Oh, I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam.
Where itís flat and immense
And the heat is intense,

Itís barbaric, but hey, itís home.
