7 African Countries With The Highest White Population | N0 1 Has Over (5.3 Million White People)

Source: | | |

Europe, Asia, and even South America all have long-standing communities in Africa. White Africans, often known as European Africans, have deep roots in Africa that stretch back to well before European colonization. People of Dutch, British, Portuguese, German, French, and to a lesser extent Italian, Spanish, Greek, Jewish, or Irish origin can be found in many regions of Africa.

The seven African nations with the highest percentages of white residents are as follows.

7 - Morocco

This northern African country is largely hilly, but it does have access to both the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, making it our number seven pick for Africa's whitest nation in 2018. The Berbers, who have been there for 5,000 years, form the bulk of the population. The Arabs conquered this area twice: once in the seventh century and again in the twentieth and twenty-first. Although more than 500,000 Europeans called the country home before independence was declared, the majority of the white population is actually French.

(6) Tunisia

This small country in northern Africa has a long and illustrious history as a significant Mediterranean trading post. Since antiquity, Berbers have inhabited this African country, which is why it is on our 2018 list of countries with the most white inhabitants. The Phoenicians, who established Carthage, the Romans, the Ottomans, and finally the French had all left their mark on the region and its population (in 1881). The country is mostly made up of Arabs and Berbers, with a smattering of French and Italians.

Madagascar is the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Despite the fact that a Portuguese sea captain named Diogo Dias was the first European to set foot on the island in 1500 after being blown off course on his trip to India, many French people live on this island nation in the Indian Ocean. A remarkable blend of Asian and African influences, Madagascar has a sizable white population and ranks fifth on our 2018 ranking of the top African countries by white population. Their attempts to create trading cities with Europeans have ended in failure, thus they have always been hostile to settlers from those countries. France took control of Madagascar when the British gave up their claims in 1896.

4 - Namibia (white population ratio = 6.4%; approx. 168,000)

Third, Zambia (white population percentage = 1%; approx. 176,000 white people live there).

Two, Angola

Angola, the seventh largest country in Africa, is located on the western coast of the continent and has the second largest white population in Africa. Portuguese influence may be seen throughout the enormous territory that is now Angola, from the earliest "white settlements" in the late 16th century until the beginning of the 19th century. A large portion of Angola's white population left the country in the latter half of the twentieth century and the early twenty-first century as a result of violence between proponents of white colonial politics and anticolonial nationalism movements.

South Africa (white population: 9.2%; approximately 5.3 million people)

In 2018, South Africa topped our list as the African country with the largest white population. In 1652, Portuguese explorers Bartolomeu Dias and Vasco da Gama "found" the southern coast of Africa, prompting the Dutch East India Company to establish its first colony in what is now Cape Town. After briefly becoming a British colony at the end of the 18th century, it was handed back to the Dutch. The Boers, descendants of Dutch settlers, were ultimately victorious in the South African War waged between the British Empire and the Boers around the turn of the twentieth century (in 1902).
