Some are harder to tell than others but there’s an accent or a way they pronounce certain words, despite being in amerika for generations.
Maybe old people. Most black people in my generation don't talk any differently from anyone else.

How old are you? I'm in my 20s and there is a clear difference between the white NY accent and black NY accent. Which there's nothing wrong with.

I'm Black and there's 0% chance of you being able to tell over the phone.

I'm a little older than you and I can't tell the difference in young people. Old people however have distinct accents where old white people say cawfee and old black people go mmm-hmm a lot.

There are Black People from European countries and they speak in the accent of their native language of the European country they come from, and no you cannot identify these people on the phone. Ditto Black Hispanics and Brazilians.

Not all Black People are African American. For AAs, some do speak “AA” English, some don’t.

Damn! Where are the Social Justice Police when you need them?

She has committed a micro-aggression and needs to be arrested for the crime of cultural appropriation -- without even having given a trigger warning first so that the snowflakery could retreat into their safe spaces.

Off to the re-education camp for AOC!

I find that hard to believe. I have heard accents from black people who live in rural areas where the majority of the population is white and they sound no different than their white counterpart.
