Terminology[edit]

The term "Afro-Russians" is never used in Russia, in Russia black people are usually called just negroes(негры). So i think this article should be renamed to "Black people in Russia"("Africans in Russia") or something like this, because current name referrs to unexistent term.--

The term is used - I am afro Russian myself by the way - as referenced in the notes sectionAla.foum (talk) 07:40, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Afro-Russian is the official term. It stays.

  • There's no "official" terms. And in Soviet Union, when ethnic descent was indicated in passport, "негр" ("black") was used.Garret Beaumain (talk) 14:27, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

It's 2013 and it's the former Soviet Union. Afro Russian is a term-I'm also Afro Russian and do use the term. There are Russian Jews. There are African Americans not blacks in America or Chinese in America...pretty sure they were non existent terms when there was segregation and racism.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nadezhda078 (talkcontribs) 08:50, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
