Black people in Europe (sometimes referred to as Afro-Europeans,[6] although this term is also used to describe people of mixed European and African descent, especially in the former European colonies[7][8]) are black people who are residents or citizens of European countries. They include immigrants as well as European-born people of Black African descent.

A Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly report on immigration from sub-Saharan Africa gives the number of sub-Saharan African migrants in Europe as between 3.5 and 8 million, concentrated mainly in Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom.[9] The report also notes that these figures are likely to underestimate the African migrant population due to factors such as illegal migration.[9]

Immigration
During the period of 2000-2005, an estimated 440,000 people per year emigrated from Africa, most of them to Europe.[10] Most of this migration is illegal,[citation needed] and the European Union Frontex agency's "Operation Hermes" is monitoring the Mediterranean between North Africa and Italy. Due to increased border controls along the Mediterranean, there has been a shift of preferred migration routes towards Greece.

The figure of 0.44 million African emigrants per year (corresponding to about 0.05% of the continent's total population), including many Black Africans, pales in comparison to the annual population growth of about 2.6%, indicating that only about 2% of Africa's population growth is compensated for by emigration.

During the 2000s, North Africa has been receiving large numbers of Black African migrants "in transit", predominantly from West Africa, who plan to enter Europe. An annual 22,000 illegal migrants took the route from either Tunisia or Libya to the island of Lampedusa in the 2000-2005 period. This figure has decreased in 2006, but it has increased greatly as a result of the 2011 Tunisian revolution and the 2011 Libyan civil war. In 2005, 10,000 West African migrants heading for Europe were stranded in the Mauritanian port of Nouadhibou, and 20,000 Black African migrants were waiting for an opportunity to cross to Europe in the Spanish enclaves in North Africa.[11]

Notable individuals

Historical Europeans of partial Black African ancestry

A number of famous European historical figures were of partial Black African ancestry, including Alexander Pushkin, Alexandre Dumas, George Polgreen Bridgetower, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and John Archer.[17]

Sports



(June 2011) Some of the most famous Black people in Europe are footballers in various European leagues. Frank Rijkaard became the first black person to Coach a European country when he was manager of the Netherlands in 2000, and has since had a successful spell coaching in Spain.[citation needed] Recently Senegalese born Pape Diouf became chairman of Olympique de Marseille.[citation needed] Paul Ince became the first black British manager of a Premier League football team after being named manager of Blackburn Rovers, having been the first black player to captain England.[citation needed] The England national football team has a number of black players since Viv Anderson became the first black player to start a match for the national team in 1978.[18] The France national football team has also featured significant numbers of black players, including, Thierry Henry, Marcel Desailly, Patrick Vieira and Lilian Thuram, who have all earned over 100 caps.

Popular culture

Harry Roselmack became the first black prime-time news anchor on a mainstream TV channel in France in July 2006.[19][20] The first black prime-time newsreader in the UK was Trevor McDonald who was employed 37 years prior by the BBC in 1969.[21]

So Europe is asleep? Ha!

I'm waiting, well the UK isn't part of the Eurozone now is it? You do not understand the social-economic environment of the UK, give it a rest already.

Who is this ''we''? What power do you have over EU-UK citizens? Absolutely none is the reality.

Golden Dawn? Let these or any other Nazi morons even try to stage a peaceful protest in London and they will be ran out in minutes.

Stick to Switzerland and having wet dreams of race wars mate.

Thanks for the laugh though.

A recession like Greece and Spain IS coming, and things will get worse still. That is a very good thing for us.

When people no longer have their cushy fantasy world to retreat to, they will be forced to accept the reality of what is happening to our societies and with the right guidance, who is responsible for its collapse.

What part of the ''UK isn't part of the €urozone'' do you not understand? Also you do not have a clue what you're on about.

Your recession scenario BS doesn't hold any truth. Many claim crime rises during a recession yet crime has decreased sharply in the UK even during the recession which we're already out of (0.6% growth in 2011, 0.8% growth predicted this year).

Who is this ''us''? Who are you morons?

You're in Switzerland. Don't compare the UK to those mainland shltholes like Greece or Spain that we're bailing out.

By 2036 the black descent population of the UK will be 5 million or 7% of the population according to current birth trends alone roughly double its population today.
