How widespread is non-rhoticity in the american south?
Are there younger speakers who speak with non rhotic accents?
Which regions are non rhotic?

For the most part, just black people.

or people in the deep south

around where I live in Coastal North Carolina it is practically non-existent. I say non-existent because I have never heard it from a native of this area, and only transplants from other southern regions have it (Ms., Ga., La., etc)

Southeastern Louisiana, where I live, is home to a unique accent, Yat, which is non-rhotic and sounds very similar to the Brooklyn accent.

older Southerners often still speak old Southern which was traditionally non-rhotic.
