I unfortunately never ran across the 3 black people who actually live in Seattle to actually key in on how they talked.
Seattle is a very diverse city and has many blacks, more than you think. Many pure blood Africans as well. So your comment is null and void.

For the record, SoCal and NorCal blacks has different accents. Us NorCal people don't emphasis our R's like they do but, we do both sound flat in our tones.

Nearly 70% white and rising isn't a very diverse city. Very diverse cities are SF, NYC, Houston, and L.A.
