It's offensive and if you refer to a Cajun as. A Coonass 2/3 of them will be offended. Get it right that no Cajun will be embarrassed to be Cajun. The Cajun people are very proud as they should be if their heritage. But often times they feel misunderstood.
Espcially outside of their region. Two thinks to remember- don't calla Cajun a Coonass and don't mistake them for creole.
Why does America have such a love/ hate with Cajuns?
I'm Cajun and Irish. What I know about both sides of my ancestry is that the dumb die and the smart prevail.
The idea that Cajuns are dumb is ridiculous.
Finally I'd like to see an end to people profiling Cajuns. Oh and those duck whatever show people aren't Cajun.
A true Cajun has the cadence of a Frenchman even when speaking English, only the French they speak is over 300 years old.
Its an amazing language to hear. They are an amazing people to know. But to hear Cajun French is a special thing. It's a dead language hear it while you can.
