My issue wasn't with the fact that the humans now know the names of the different races. My issue was the fact that when they were interrogating the blonde sniper, they were using those names with her as if she would know what they are talking about. It was almost as if the writers completely forgot that those names were only known to the people at Charlotte at this point.

And then in episode 4 they remembered their mistake when Mason explained the names of the two alien factions to POTUS.

Native Charlestonians don't have much of a southern accent. I mean we say y'all and honey and darlin' but we aren't drawly rednecks like other TV shows and movies have made us out to sound.

Old native Charlestonians actually have a "gullah" accent.
My grandmother, who died at 97 had a very thick gullah accent.

It's a sociological cornucopia of silliness.
