He didn't say "the American accent". He said "an American accent". Surely someone from Texas has an American accent, same as someone from Munich has a German accent.I think what Possum was trying to get across was surprise that someone was surprised that someone of ethnicity had a local accent (in this case Newfoundland); and surely people of ethnicities who grow up elsewhere in would have an American accent (local to the area obviously).For instance, in the UK there is a well known Black comedian called Lenny Henry, who has a strong Dudley accent (similar to a Birmingham accent), which is a British accent.
