You probably think that base on the city your living in but Carribeans, Hispanic, Africans, etc aren't nowhere near the same population size as Blacks. It's the geographic distrubution of their populations is centered around large cities. Especially NYC.

black in combination is 1 black parent and 1 native american or caucasion or asian parent (which is about 2 % of the population).

from your own link that you obviously didnt read:
Quote:
DEFINITION OF BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN USED
IN THE 2010 CENSUS
According to OMB, “Black or African American” refers to a person
having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.
The Black racial category includes people who marked the “Black,
African Am., or Negro” checkbox. It also includes respondents who
reported entries such as African American; Sub-Saharan African
entries, such as Kenyan and Nigerian; and Afro-Caribbean entries,
such as Haitian and Jamaican.*

I've read it multiple times. I'm using it in that similar distinction. Note: I said MIXED Black first. It's not that hard to understand.

What? This is wrong. That person is counted on the census as “Black/African American”. They would only be counted under “Jamaican” ancestry if they indicated as such.
