Description The Creoles of History and the Creoles of Romance by Charles Gayarre

Excerpt from The Creoles of History and the Creoles of Romance: A Lecture Delivered in the Hall of the Tulane University, New Orleans In every nation the human language has modified itself in the course of time. The spelling and pronunciation of many words have changed- their original meaning has frequently become obscure and misapplied. But few have met so striking a transformation as the word criollo in Spanish, and criole in French, at least in these United States, it not in any other part of the world- for it conveys to the immense majority of the Americans of Anglo-Saxon origin a meaning that is the very reverse of its primitive signification. Without going into a learned etymological investigation about it, I will content myself with stating that, according to the definitions given by the dictionaries of the French and Spanish Academies, which, as to language, are, as of much final authority as the the Supreme Court of the United States in matters of law, creole means the issue of European parents in Spanish or French colonies. It was first invented by the Spaniards to distinguish their children, natives of their conquered colonial possessions, from the original natives whom they found in those newly discovered regions of the earth. Criollo was derived from the verb criar (create), and used only to designate the Spanish-created natives, who were not to he confounded with the aborigines - with beings of an unknown origin - with the mahogany-tinted small fry of God'
s creation. Therefore to be a criollo was to possess a sort of title of honor - a title which could only be the birthright of the superior white race.
