LOL...why don't people say what they really mean. (To my ears at least) Many black Californians do have that accent...saying party like "porty," car like "core"....but some black people from certain Moidwestern cities have that going on too.

Maybe it's the accent that was brought from the Arkansas region to Cali...

Exactly, that's what I was saying a few pages ago.

These videos make me laugh everytime. This guy used to live in the Bay Area and basically he makes spoof videos now of how many young urban men talk out here in the Bay Area....the boys in the city I live in talk EXACTLY like this.

Thanks!
I don't know any real ones -- natives -- so I can't tell. It's easier to pick them out if they move out of state. After you eliminate the folks from NY/NJ by their accents, Californians are the ones that do the happy dance in the street when they get their first property tax bill.
