    How many of you pronounce the word, Aunt as "Ant?" Like Aunt Bertha
    How many of you say "ont," or "ontie?"

    In my experience, almost 100% of the blacks say "ont," or "ontie?"
    100% of the whites say "ant."

    Sorry, other races, you're out on this one but feel free to give your opinion.

    We had Klan in Indiana when I lived there. I haven't seen any evidence in Texas but have no doubt there are some around.

    Its been my personal experience that most white people pronounce it "Ant" and most American black people pronounce it "Ont". I don't know why, but I always that "Ont" sounded more elegant.

    One time when my kids were 5 or 6, my wife was driving them somewhere in the little town we lived in. She drove through the town square and ran smack into a Klan rally. She thought she was dead that day.

    She's white but there was a whole group of people there protesting the Klan and there were snipers on the roofs and tons of cops. She thought she and the girls were going to get dragged out of the car and ravished or something. It scared the shit out of her.

    That's crazy. I have lived in Kentucky all my life and I've never seen that type of stuff actually.

    I say "ant", but I know some whites who say "ont". They are British though if that matters.

    This is a man on a message board who thinks he's Napoleon, so I suppose that comes with the territory. :)

    I suspect there are some regional influences but it's just weird that there is definitely a division by races.
