Ultimately, however, the word Creole remains murky, with some individuals (black, white, and mixed-race) futilely claiming the right of exclusive use. As the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture states, perhaps the "safest" course is to say that a Creole is "anyone who says he is one."

CREOLES ARE MADE UP OF CERTAIN FAMILIES AND BLOODLINES-AND THIS IS MORE TRUE IN TEH NEW ORLEANS AREAS THAN OTHER PARTS WHO JUST STARTED USING THE TERM.. CREOLES ARE A COMMUNITY WITH A CERTAIN SHARED HISTORY.

You don't have to have french blood to be considered creole. French was nothing more than an ethnic influence within the creole culture...as was spanish, african, and indian.

W.E.B DuBois was not 1/10th black african. His parents were mixed mulatto blacks and so were his grandparents. His grandfather Alfred was half white/half black and he married a black woman. W.E.B. Dubois considered himself a proud mixed race black man and his creole father abandoned him and his mother. So he never even thought of himself as creole. I am a proud creole of african-descent and frenc, irish , english and spanish and choctaw and I am proud of that but I will never deny or be ashamed of my African heritage like some creoles who wish they never had any black blood. they ought to be ashamed of themselves.
