@Edamame: 
"Cajun" is a corruption of "Acadian", Acadia being the collective name for the French colonies in Maritime Canada. Most of them were deported after the Seven Years' War when they refused to sign allegiance to Britain, and a lot made their way to Spanish Louisiana.
 
However, Gambit's accent is wildly inaccurate for New Orleans.

It's apart of his character, who he is. Too bad. He wouldn't be the same without it.

@ownsin: I love his character, but once you read about some of the bad things that he does, it'll give you some shaky feelings. But overall, he's a good character. One of my favorite x-men.

Why would you even need to ask if he's from France if you know his accent is Cajun? Ugh, think, man!

I'm from the south and sometimes I find her accent to be offensive
 
but on the Topic of Gambit i love the way he talks its just cool to have someone with an accent instead of him being like everyone else speaking complete english
I wish they would make Colossus's Russian accent more obvious, you know have him say "I Must Break You!"

the accents are just the most obvious problem they all are portrayed as unintelligent
and big oofs that if they could would yell "Hulk Smash" more than the hulk 
and they all are into living on the earth, Southerners aren't Native Americans
and they all aren't racists or bigots.

@Ultimate JSA:  actually a creole is a combination of languages that becomes its own language, it's not a type of person, Gambit is a person who speaks a creole, and the name of that creole is cajun

New Orleans is not majority Cajun. In fact only a tiny percentage of the New Orleans population is Cajun. Most Cajuns are concentrated in the areas southwest of New Orleans, like Houma and Thibodaux.
