TODAY I KNOW HERE IN NEW ORLEANS WELL LOUISIANA AS A WHOLE HAVE CREOLE, MULATTO, CAJUN, FRENCH AND INDIAN. AND VERY DARK-SKINNED CREOLE AS WELL. CREOLE IS HISTORICALLY REFERRED TO THOSE BORN IN LOUISIANA DURING THE FRENCH AND SPANISH PERIODS, REGUARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNICITY. THE "PAPERBAG TEST IN THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURY WAS OFTEN UTILIZED IN BLACK SPAACES AND IN TE HIRING BLACK PEOPLE. IF SOMEONE WAS THE SAME COLOR AS OR LIGHTER-SKINNED THAN A PAPER BAG, THEY WOULD BE ALLOWED INTO THE SPACE/CONSIDERED FOR HIRE. IF THEY WERE ANY DARKER THAN A PAPER BAG, THE WOULD NOT.
IN HIRING THE LIGHTER SKIN WAS OFTER REPIRTED ON A RESUME AHEAD OF ANY OTHER INFORMATION OR EXPERIENCE.
SLAVES WITH LIGHTER SKINN ARE ASSIGNED DOMESTIC TASKS WHILE SLAVES WITH DARKER SKINN WERE FORCED TO WORK OUTSIDE IN THE FIELDS DOING MUCH MORE GRUELING TASKS. LIGHTER SKINNED SLAVES WERE FAVORED BECAUSE THEY WERE OFTEN THE PRODUCT OF A SLAVE OWNER RA#ING A SLAVE, THUS CREATING A LIGHTER-SKINNED CHILD. NOW LET'S GET TO THE GETTING BEFORE THE GETTING GETS GOT
