Johnson |  The Cost of an Accent; Sounding black hsa a profound impact on Americans' lives. Economist, Aug 4, 2018
https://www.economist.com/books- ... the-cost-of-accents
("Americans know instinctively that “Cassius Green” is more likely to be black than white * * * The southern accent scored between the two [white accent and black accent] on most of the rankings. Sounding southern and white costs you a bit; sounding black costs a lot. * * * The British discriminate on the basis of class and region more than race")

Note: Cassius: "An old Roman family name of uncertain meaning."  from the Web.
