Not trying to be racist or anything like that but interesting how every or almost every country on here has one thing in common which is a significantly large black population.

Have you ever been to Colombia before? Because I have and from experience I can promise you that you're wrong. Both Belize and Venezuela also have large black populations. Just because Venezuelans with majority African blood don't compose the majority of that nation doesn't neccesarily mean the country isn't home to a large population of them. You have to remember that different countries have differing criteria for racial categorization too. In the US for example, mulatto people are usually considered to be black by both African Americans and Whites, an example of which is Obama. Sixty percent of all Venezuelans claim some African lineage although the vast majority are not full/ almost full. It's only Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador on this list where you won't find a large number of them residing. So 12 out of 15 is almost all of them.
