In addition, there have been 'East Indian' (isn't that the American coined word for Indians from India) in Africa for centuries - i.e. Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, etc.

Middle Eastern....some loosely defined word....is that the American-coined word for 'Arabic-speakers'...the ones that have lived in Northern Africa for milleniums. I.E., Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, etc.

White people...South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Kenya, etc. Plus you have American Peace Corp workers and NGO's of white who stay in present day situations, and many French and Portuguese people still migrating to Africa because of the language...i.e. Angola and Mozambique have been attracting Portuguese this last decade because of their economies at times being better than Portugal, etc.
My Portuguese great-great grandfather immigrated from the British West Indies to U.S.A So Portuguese people move everywhere. So us Luso-Americans can be found in the caribbean, and Africa, but a lot of us are mixed as well. here's a pic of my Portuguese great-great grandfather:

He was from the British West Indies (British Guiana) of Madeiran Portuguese descent.

I don't think it's healthy to obsess over anything but if you want to live in Africa, go for it.
What’s the name of the Instagram account? I would love to follow it!
