“If I’m in Louisiana, there really is no uncertainty about my background or ethnicity. But if I’m in Louisiana and someone who is not from Louisiana meets me, often they’ll ask ‘Are you Creole?’ Or if I’m in the South outside of New Orleans, it’s ‘Oh, you’re from New Orleans. You’re a Creole.’ No, I’m not Creole. I’m Black.”
