The culture of the Creole (native) in Louisiana emerged from the blending of:?

The culture of the Creole (native) in Louisiana emerged from the blending of:

a. Native American, French and Latino cultures
b. Native American, French and African American cultures
c. Latino, French and African American cultures
d. French, Portuguese and Native American cultures

E. None of the above… There is no evidence that Native Americans are in this mix.

Always a controversial and confusing term, the word Creole, to put it simply, means many things to many people. It derives from the Latin creare, meaning "to beget" or "create." After the New World’s discovery, Portuguese colonists used the word crioulo to denote a New World slave of African descent. Eventually, the word was applied to all New World colonists, regardless of ethnic origin, living along the Gulf Coast, especially in Louisiana. There the Spanish introduced the word as criollo, and during Louisiana’s colonial period (1699-1803) the evolving word Creole generally referred to persons of African or European heritage born in the New World. By the nineteenth century, black, white, and mixed-race Louisianians used the term to distinguish themselves from foreign-born and Anglo-American settlers. It was during that century that the mixed-race Creoles of Color (or gens de couleur libre, "free persons of color") came into their own as an ethnic group, enjoying many of the legal rights and privileges of whites. They occupied a middle ground between whites and enslaved blacks, and as such often possessed property and received formal educations. After the Civil War, most Creoles of Color lost their privileged status and joined the ranks of impoverished former black slaves. All the while, however, the word Creole persisted as a term also referring to white Louisianians, usually of upper-class, non-Cajun origin (although, confusingly, even Cajuns sometimes were called Creoles, primarily by outsiders unfamiliar with local ethnic labels). Like the Creoles of Color, these white Creoles (also called French Creoles) suffered socioeconomic decline after the Civil War. In Acadiana, newly impoverished white Creoles often intermarried with the predominantly lower-class Cajuns, and were largely assimilated into Cajun culture.

how can a person from baton rouge louisiana, amke it in the music industry if there not really no connections?


Get out there and market yourself..right not the SOUTH is hot..so you can use that as an advantage.

And ignore the other persons post:

It’s about time Baton Rouge rappers get out there with some common sense and business sense…Baton Rouge can’t play little brother to New Orleans forever..ex: who would have thought a rapper from mississippi would have blown up the way he did (DAVID BANNER)!

Good Luck to you!

For men who find Louisiana Creole women unattractive?

Why? No one ever gives a direct answer, they simply say "they are not my type" or "I’m just not interested in them."

Is it their physical appearance? Culture and customs? Maybe embarrassment you’ll bring to your family? And for men that don’t find Louisiana Creole women attractive, is it because of all the old stereotypes you are *afraid* a Louisiana Creole woman might have?

I’m not getting it.

It’s the hoodoo.
