As a side note, sort of, I remember in college (as a Comparative Language

major), discussing with a good friend and classmate what we perceived to be

a "smokey" quality to African-American voices. This had nothing to do with

accent/grammar/Southernisms/etc. She was African-American and was planning

to do a year in Paris to study if Blacks in France also had that "smokey"

quality. We lost contact after I graduated and so I don't know if she ever

went or did the study.
