Need to see evidence that they are importing African women to China for marriage. Otherwise, I call bs on that one. What you ARE seeing are Lao, Cambodian and Burmese women doing that. And North Koreans who manage to get out.

This is true, nothing to see here, and is historically on par for Chinese migrant workers.

I'm sure it was also considered pretty odd, when Chinese migrant workers started marrying Australian Women in the 1850's.

I wonder how the Chinese and African can communicate since they don't have a common language

it would depend where they live, i would assume. If in Africa more likely an African language, if in China the wife would have to learn some Mandarin.

Right. During the last half of the 19th century, thousands of Chinese men were brought to the west indies to work. Many of them married African and Indian women.
