No two races in the world are as different as whites of European descent and blacks of African descent.
Are we talking genetically or culturally?

There are certainly towns and small cities in the NT and northern WA that have a large indigenous population, particularly when you include smaller settlements within 20 or 30 minutes drive time.

Thatís a minuscule, nearly negligible share of the Hispanic population. Colorism floated them to the top.

I donít know the answer to that. But I have noticed that almost every developed country has very restricted immigration from sub-Saharan African countries.

It does strike me as curious and Iíll leave it at that.

Funny how you asked specifically NOT to make this about numbers, and almost right away posters made this about numbers.

Overall? Entire countries with tens and hundreds of millions of humans? Who knows?

Who, what statistician, can measure how "people get along with each other ... tension"?

I would take it on a scale of local community (e.g. workplace, school, classroom, residential building, court house) and individual-to-individual basis.

Collecting statistics is a business, like any other, and statisticians look to protect their business interests, like everybody else, so they tend to divide people on large scale (easier to manage) like so many sycophant politicians and their business overlords.

Good Luck!

Really? There's been a lot of people moving from Sub Saharan Africa to America lately and most of them are actually educated and well off. It's part of the brain drain problem with many African countries.

I know some in local school communities, from Congo and a few other places, very classy people.

Probably because most sub saharan Africans don't emigrate out of Africa in the same numbers as people who leave Asian and Latin American countries. And I'll leave it at that.

They're also younger countries with a higher birth rate than western countries. Although 2nd and 3rd generations typically have birth rates similar to the local population.
