generally white american right wing conspiracy theorist nuts, different breed than those who may overly criticize American media on virtue of being American.

Well the thing with Brazil is that the mixed race ethnic group, Pardos are about 5% behind the White population which is about 48%, so it's almost 50/50 over there. Well, it does go over 100% in official estimates, probably from people choosing to identify with more than one.

And if you weren't looking for White plurality countries then you should've explicitly stated in the OP and title non-White plurality countries for Blacks to live, be more clear about what you want, you may have stated it further on in the thread but not everybody reads through all of that, and would've been better to state that initially to prevent any confusion and wasted suggestions.

*shrugs* Hardly hinders comprehension but whatever.

No, I shouldn't have stated non-White plurality, I stated what I meant. I would think most of the adults on this thread would have enough reading comprehension skills to surmise and understand what I wrote. But as I've already simplified my question for people like you there's no need in furthering arguing the point. I'm not going to play semantics and argue over a few percentage points. There's only been a couple people who've had trouble understanding my question.

I agree with you as fas as not understanding those who must constantly plit hairs over every single word you post. It's one reason I've been a spectator on this topic. Nothing's more frustrating than that.

As far as the topic at hand; perhaps I missed it but what sort of things are you looking for in a non white majority country? Do you care if it's a developed country? I ask because it looks like you are trying to get away from racism. But as some have pointed out, ironically, it's the white majority countries that are the least racist save Eastern Europe. Most of the world still has a sort of racial caste system, even if it's not official and darker skinned people almost always make up the very bottom level.

More like dark mix vs light mix no matter the amount of African.

All American countries are "white" notwithstanding the race, even Haiti is white.
I don't thing there's any country, even in Africa, whose mainstream culture is African.

At first I agreed with this comment but then I thought "no" many Latin American countries (infact all) are a hybrid of European or "white", Amerindian, African and Asian. The same with Haiti its a Creole culture a blend of European (French) and West-central African.

As for African countries its more of a blend, many people only speak European languages as a second language. African languages are spoken on a daily basis.

Ok. And you're basing this off of what experience or research?

If you have a problem with Brazil for being white plurality instead of white majority than what you mean is more accurately non-white plurality countries, so it wasn't stating what you meant very well.

And what do you mean simplifying the question? Isn't just saying white majority and having that cover anything with too many white people for your tastes over-simplified as it is, taking the simple approach instead of clarifying what you wanted in the OP and only clarifying when pressed while getting all defensive and rude about it?
