Are creole people black? Does creole refer also to the white French people that settled in Louisiana or does it not anymore? Do you know what the white French people that settled in Louisiana would be referred to as today?

To be honest, I do not know, I am from Maryland lol. I think while I was learning about louisiana, I always thought creole was a name given to those mixed with african and french or spanish. I thought cajun referred to the white people, but thats my elementary thought process. I wish I could help, but I really don’t know. Anyone else know?
