Confusion on Creole Identity
...Many so called scholars who are in fact not Creoles, the Encyclopedias, Dictionaries and the so called know it alls have been doing nothing but second guessing Our Creole definition and Our beginnings...It started way back when the Americans invaded their newly purchased Louisiana Territory.
Prior to Americas occupation of the Louisiana Territory, The French Creoles whether White, Black, Mixed Race, Free people of color indentured servants or slaves all co mingled together enjoyed the same Culture and Spoke the same Language..From the beginning of the Louisiana Colony until the selling of the Louisiana Territory it's inhabitants lived in a three tiered society long before there was a " One Drop Rule " . There is no way You can compare American Culture to that of the French Latin Culture that governed the Lives of the French Inhabitants of Louisiana
We always hear such things as Creoles can be anything and any Race....They can Be Germans, Italians Asians etc etc...Wrong wrong wrong..Perhaps during the time of Early colonization but not now. It's not a "catch all Culture" where anyone who Claims He is Creole is Creole..Also such statements as the Original Creoles were Europeans and even that Creoles no Longer exist make no sense at all..
Well, these People that are making such statements are those same People that are using dictionaries that are outdate and have adopted Americanized Racist orientated definitions to discredit The Creole of Color..You must remember that the very word "Creole" means to Create" meaning not White not Black not Native American but a combination of all three..and were called so by the Spanish and Portugese Colonizers
.This web site wants to set the record straight that Our Creole Civilization dates back to Sub Sahara of Antiquity and it and it's language existed long before the colonization of French Louisiana...So lets get the story straight . A Creole is NOT anyone who wants to be called one.. A Creole is a Member of a Bonified Culture and Ethnic Group that have Ancestorial ties to Africa ,Louisiana ,Native America and Europe ..Creoles in Haiti, The Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and World wide have Language and Culture ties which is proof that it's not just sometihing that is created for the individual who wants to be associated with something or someone who is different
