- Bad idea to mix geographic origin with skin color/ethnicity. What to to with en:Afro-Arabs and white Africans; the more one makes distinction, the more you will run into problems. --Foroa (talk) 15:55, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
- I was thinking that Black Africans in art can naturally be a subcat of a later-created People of Africa in art, thus catering for both ethnicity & geography without cross-categorizing; for now, you can clearly see that "Africans in art" is about 100% used for blacks. Besides, when someone says "African" they usually mean a black African. Orrlingtalk 18:50, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I guess it can be OK to even move this cat directly to Category:People of Africa in art. Then I can re-tag those files speaking to Black Africans for "People of Subsaharan Africa in art" and the few (if any) relating to North-Africans can be pinched-out into a suitable group.

This category is about to be moved to Category:People of Africa in art, from which Category:Black Africans in art will be extracted. (or optional: People of Sub-Saharan Africa in art.) If there's any objections or corrections let them be heard within the coming day please. Regardz, Orrlingtalk 07:59, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
- Oppose With Africans, it is meant black people that can come from all over the world. --Foroa (talk) 18:50, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
