Creole is NOT African American but we socialize with AAs just lately. I love socializing with the black folks. I accept my French side.

Creole make good allegator bait too. You can call yourself Tinker Bell, a racist will call you c00n. Diablo wasn't an AA either and that didn't stop racist cops from target practice.

LOL This thread was more in response to a thread i had earlier going on abt beyonce whitewashing herself. Ppl on that thread were like "she should call herself creole...but she lightskin!...but she DOES have french blood!" lol take a look at it. I just thought that i'd start the ball rolling where I'm claiming all of my heritage as well. I couldn't leave out the frenchspanishbritishindianswis setcetera could I? It wouldn't be right for me to say i'm black if i'm REALLY mixed race...

creoles are completely different than AA.... They may be American now, just like Puerto Ricans are american, they still don't call themselves AAs though because their roots and culture is different...Puerto Rico is now an American territory as well. The creoles lived in an area where it didn't transfer to the United states until after 1800, so the culture is Latin, whereas the gullahs resided in an area of south/north carolina that was considered part of the united states and is heavily British-influenced like the rest of the African American US population. Gullahs just retained more african culture than AAs. But I wouldn't say that Gullahs are AA either.

Don't be dissing your fellow bros, he is from Louisiana, attending creoles festival. Just because your great grandmothers were raped by whites doesn't mean you ain't ni gga. Embrace your nappy hair and wide nose.

some creoles think they the only mixed blacks in america. obviously they've never been to the west or east coast. this is not an issue for those of us outside of the south.

LMFAO! I didn't say i was trying to be white, i just said that Creole isn't african american by a long shot. There are some jet black creoles from louisiana and there are caucasian creoles as well.

well thats my point. creoles and gullahs descend from slaves that were brought to the u.s. and because of that they're the same as mainstream AAs technically. the only thing that sets creoles and gullahs apart from AAs is the unique cultures. other than that you are just an AA subgroup, no way around it..

i can take 60 AAs with me and start practicing a new way of life in some enclave in north carolina.. we would still be AAs but just practice a different culture, thus we would be a sub-group

creole slaves were NOT originally brought to the US colonies...they were a part of the French colonies and Spanish colonies, just like puerto ricans/cubans/haitians. Are dominicans/haitians AA? NO! Why? They have a different history and culture. You could NOT take 60 AAs with you and start practicing Gullah and call yourself a Gullah because you don't descend from the original settlers of Gullah-land. You would have Gullah culture however because you adopted it, but you would not have Gullah history and Gullah would not be your ethnicity.

do you need a map and a timeline? Lol

well dominicans and haitians have their nationalities right? but from what you said, creole is a culture.. ive seen someone post about creole haitians, and they would have to be a sub-group of haitians right? so LA creole would have to be a sub-group of AAs or americans by virtue of you residing in the U.S. and being black or mixed black or whatever you want to call yourselves..

you completely misread what i posted. i said i could take 60 AAs and create my OWN group within AA populace.. we would have our own customs, foods, history etc but we would only be a sub-group

Bottom Line is you are still seen as black.
