Creole as a language?

It continues to amaze me how languages that are not "officially" recognized as having European origin are always marginalized in value.

No different then America's Ebonics, Creole is an legitimate language.

It will always be a language linguistically because it is a form of communication that is accepted and utilized within a particular culture (ie Haitians, poor, hip-hop, etc).

If a form of communication is consistently utilized in a community, it IS legitimate.

Just because some people (aka white or wealthy) don't embrace it, doesn't minimize its value or legitimacy!!!!!
