    If you are NT you will see local Chinese girl and African guy couples pretty often. Especially around Yuen Long.

    Yeah if you look at Naomi Osaka (1/2 black 1/2 Japanese tennis player) I think most HK people will consider her to be black or African and not realize she is mixed.

    Back in Macau I had a colleague surnamed Au-Yeung who was black as the proverbial ace of spades - twist to the above, it was her father who was Chinese, mother British of Ghanaian ancestry.

    Not too common but more common than elsewhere in Asia. Still far from common as in the UK and US. And not girls, women of different age groups.

    In Shekou of Shenzhen, mixed race children are seen more often than HK.
    In Macao, many Macanese which are people of mixed Portuguese and Asian descent often look very Asian with similar black hair and speak Cantonese as mother tongue.

    It's definitely not a twist. Many Chinese and Korean expats abandoned their mixed-race babies in Africa. The problem is getting out of hand.

    Thank you for your answers. I had not realised that the African side was so dominant in the children's appearance.

    I saw these mothers and children in the north-west New Territories.

    They're almost certainly mixed families then. And a good lesson in not making assumptions before you accidentally put your foot in your mouth
