(For China, it may be good to introduce some diversity. I hope they can handle it well.)

“My wife and two kids live in Nigeria,” the 48-year-old trader tells The Global Mail. “I see them once a year when I go back to visit. I tried to get them visas to join me, but it wasn’t possible.”
A tall, elegant black man with grey stubble on his chin, Ononiba has lived in Guangzhou for four years; he has a registered company and pays Chinese taxes, but he still can’t get residency visas for his family. Even if he could, migration isn’t a good option for his young children.
“We have tried to set up an African school, but there is no permission. Any African kid here must go to a local Chinese school, where everything is taught in Chinese and our black-skinned children are looked down upon,” he explains.
...
There are at least 20,000 Africans, mostly from West African nations such as Nigeria, Ghana and Mali, living legally in Guangzhou, a city of about 12 million. The number could be as high as 150,000 if you include the many illegals and those temporarily in the city chasing business opportunities.

Lots of Chinese in Africa so it makes sense but Id be leery staying long term. The Chinese aren't known for being big on diversity or political correctness.

I have no problem with the position of the Chinese that if you wish to reside there, you learn the language so that you are not a drain on the system.

A foreigner in China will always be a foreigner there and not be fully integrated into Chinese society.

I wonder how long it will take for the crime statistics to notice them.

Q: How long before they start to realize that the U.S. is maybe NOT the most racist country on Earth?

A: Forever.

When have Africans ever made such a claim?

Get your nasty foot out of your mouth.

Good luck to them. Xenophobic East Asia isn't the most welcoming place to some foreigners.

Not fond of this at all. What does a black person gain out of living in a non-black country ?
