@tonetalks 45% of black immigrants arrived in the U.S. in 2000 or later. 24% said they arrived sometime in 2006 or later, according to the Pew Research Center. About a third (31%) say they began living in the U.S. prior to 1990 and 24% arrived in the 1990s.

@tonetalks “... the American Negro is not an African..."

So....
@tonetalks The black/African American population on July 1, 2015 was 46.3 million, up about 1.3 percent from July 1, 2014. The number of people who identified as black/African American in the 2010 Census was 42 million.

@tonetalks In 2016, there were 42,100,000 blacks residing in America. This number is made up of #ADOS, foreign-born blacks and their American-born 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation U.S. citizens children born on American soil.

@tonetalks Black immigrants and their children make up approximately 18% percent of the U.S. black population at 7,578,000 million. Approximately 4.2 million being their recent black foreign-born recent immigrant parents.

@tonetalks When you do the math, of the total 7,578,000 non-#ADOS blacks residing legally here in America, 4,200,000 are foreign born and 3,3780,00 are their 1st, 2nd, 3rd generation U.S.-born non-#ADOS black citizen children as of 2016.
@tonetalks In 2018 US Census Bureau estimated 47,841,851 African Americans in the United States meaning that 14.6% of the total American population of 327.2 Million is Black.

@tonetalks Keep in mind that all of these figures are approximation and estimates based on Census data. They do not represent exact population totals, but are sufficient to paint us picture of the Black population breakdown for ADOS vs. Non-ADOS residing in America.
@tonetalks Also keep in mind that while foreign-born "non-#ADOS" non-citizens/citizens (i.e., "immigrants") are always shown distinctly separate from #ADOS totals or U.S. Black population Their U.S.-born, non-#ADOS "citizen" children are always included in #ADOS non-immigrant totals.
@tonetalks We're only shown the 4.2 million foreign-born "immigrants,"who represent up 8.7-9% of the total U.S. black population, but their 3.8 million, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation U.S.-born "citizen" children are never clearly distinguished from #ADOS black population totals
@tonetalks In fact, some scholars have shown that the number of African immigrants who have come to the United States since 1990 as voluntary migrants now exceeds the number of black Africans brought to the United States during the slave trade. -(Hamilton, 2019). (pg.#27 para#1)
