Africans could soon take over these countries outside the continent

Africans make up just 4.4 percent of the U.S. immigrant population, at an estimated 2.1 million people as of 2017. This, however, is a substantial increase from the 800,000 African migrants living in America in 1970. The number of migrants from Africa to the United States is the fastest among all populations from 2000 and 2013, increasing 41 percent during that period. The majority of African immigrants come from sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Egypt, and Kenya, and settle in African enclaves in New York, California, Texas, and Maryland.
