Black people

The term black people usually refers to a racial group of humans with a light brown to a black skin color and born with Afro textured hair, but it has also been used to categorize a number of diverse populations into one common group. Some definitions of the term include only people of relatively recent Sub Saharan African descent (see African diaspora). Among the members of this group, dark skin typically is accompanied by the expression of natural afro-hair texture. Other definitions of the term Black extend to any of the populations characterized by dark skin, a definition that also includes certain populations in Oceania, Southeast Asia., and the southern Middle East
