McWhorter indicates that Africans expanded English and French pidgins into plantation creoles not because they did not have access to the European lexifiers; rather, they developed new means of communication because creoles came to represent a symbol of black identity for the slaves working in the fields. For this reason, African workers on colonial plantations would have had two different linguistic targets: the pidgin and the European lexifier. They would acquire the pidgin, thus participating in the making of a creole, to express black identity and, in some cases, they would also acquire a second-language variety of the European lexifier, to interact with whites.
