Vandalism[edit]

A single purpose account and likely sock has attempted to conflate this Template:Immigration from Africa with the Template:African diaspora. This template only deals only with actual recent immigrants and citizens from Africa irrespective of race, such as Nigerian Americans and Egyptian Canadians. It does not deal with persons from the New or Old world that are descended specifically from Black people who left or were taken from the continent centuries ago, such as African Americans or Jamaican Canadians. Note that this SPA -- which was created just a few months ago ([1]) yet appears to have a rather precocious understanding of Wikipedia's formatting templates -- also added a deletion template to this page [2], claiming that immigration from Africa (the actual topic of this template) is "non-notable". This is obviously absurd and has likewise been reverted. Middayexpress (talk) 21:38, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
