A good deal of the "Alabama accent" is Celtic in origin. Alabama was settled predominately by descendants of colonists who came to America in the 1600's and 1700's from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and England.

Ireland was originally referred to as "Scotia Major" whereas the north of Britain was formerly referred to as "Scotia Minor" because it was simply an outpost colony of the Scots.
None of the above backs up the racist vomit that has been posted by the internationally recognized fraudster who claims to be the hereditary chief of a non existent Scottish clan .

Racism has never bothered me since I belong to the superior race.

Ah, so you consider those who advocate against race-mixing to be "trash"? How peculiar, among my social-circle the opposite is true.
