“I feel like for some Black people, if I identify myself as Creole, to them that would mean that I don’t want to be Black or that I feel that Black is inferior. And that’s why I don’t identify like that because I don’t feel like that. I just resent the baggage that Creole identity comes with. Because racism is so insidious, Creoles are defined by colorism and prejudice. And I don’t want to be associated with or defined by that.”
