It's Mardi Gras Time..Let the good times roll...
There is no state in the Union, hardly any spot of like size on the globe, where the man of color has lived so intensely, made so much progress, been of such historical importance and yet about whom so comparatively little is known.
His history is like the Mardi Gras of the city of New Orleans, beautiful and mysterious and wonderful, but with a serious thought underlying it all. May it be better known to the world someday.

Creole by Definition
A...........Historically, the term Creole was documented by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. In "The Inca", writing in the early 1600s, he said: "The name was invented by the Negroes... They use it to mean a Negro born in the Indies, and they devised it to distinguish those who come from this side and were born in Guinea from those born in the New World....
B...........Another version states that the term Creole (Spanish -- Criollo) was introduced in 1590. It derived from the Latin word “crear”, which meant, “create.” In 1590, Father J. de Acosta decided that the mixed breeds born in the New World were neither Spanish, African, Indian, but various mixtures of all three, thus a created race. So he identified them as "Criollos".
The Spanish copied them by introducing this word to describe those born in the New World, and in this way both Spaniards and Guinea Negroes are called criollo if they were born in the New World."

What Does Creole mean to Us ??
More than once in ongoing discussion regarding the meaning of the word “Creole,” it has been remarked by some pithy yet insightful party that “anyone who is compelled to ask what a Creole is, is most definitely not one himself.”
Outside observers tended to identify as Creoles only those very fair-complexioned colored people of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast whose manners, customs, and heritages were overwhelmingly Gallic.
This definition tends to limit the definition of Creoles to mulattoes or mixed-race people which is an egregious error, which accounts for mulatto or mixed-race people in a variety of cities and regions being labeled as Creole, when in fact they are not.
This definition completely eliminates the presence of white persons who identified and were identified as Creoles.A. E. Perkins, as quoted above, correctly culls the fact that Creole is an identifier which traditionally transcended the pitiable racial caste system. Creole was a cultural identifier and an attestation of heritage.
