This is me purposely trying to speak without a Minnesota accent. I do a general American non-accent first, and then I try a Southern, New York and California accent. Let me know what you think.

I think you need to speed it up, the accent comes out a bit as the words are a little drwn out, it is hard to mask an accent

Lol. The Minnesota accent is still noticeable in all of your impressions, particularly the first one.

OK I'm having too much trouble trying to get this video on youtube and I don't have the time to sit here and try to figure this out. It's Friday and I'm going to get a bottle of Ciroq Red and Patron. So here's my audio again from zshare. It plays in realplayer after you do a quick download.

Wow, you were close, I am Black but from the South, I lived in Chicago for 2 years when I was 4 and 5, but I am very southern, lived most of my life in Fayetteville, NC, also lived in Colorado Springs for 1 year and Atlanta for 5, born in Charlotte and lived their off and on for about 6 yrs and live in Charlotte now. My mom has a very thick androgynous Chicago accent that is annoying and embaressing(LOL I can spell androgynous but I can spell embaressing), and my aunt says My voice is only a little more masculine and southern than her.
