You're right! We North Kackalackians have absorbed Sub-Saharan speech patterns. :P

I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and we do have a lot of Finnish-descent people here.

I rarely see any darker-skinned people here. Off the top of my head I can only remember 2 that are black (They're half-black at best, also) that live here, another that's part mexican, and another that's half arabic... Notice how they're all at most half.

Most of the blacks and arabics are downstate, towards the border with Ohio. (You definitely notice the transition when you drive all the way to Detroit.)

You're right! We North Kackalackians have absorbed Sub-Saharan speech patterns. :POoh, I forgot you were from NC too. Sub-Sarahan speech patterns? Actually NC has somewhat diverse speech patterns. I'll include a clip of a "no name town" Piedmont-NC accent. (NC is broken into Mountains, Piedmont, Coast).
I can't speak for Michigan, I've never been there.

I have a heavy and noticeable Great Lakes accent, I have learned from travelling in the South and West. People usually think I am from Canada or Minnesota when I'm oot and aboot. I guess maybe cuz I like hockey too, eh? :P

Always interested me how and why the different American accents developed. :scratch

I really can't hear any southern accent in the audio clip, It sounds like a regular American accent to me. As for New Jersey, I guess it comparable to a Brooklyn accent. When
I watch the Sopranos I have to have the captions on sometimes to understand what is being said,and I have lived in New Jersey my whole life.

"a regular American accent " I guess that's a biased statement, sorry.
