Did you imagine that "African" referred to a racial group?  It 
doesn't.  As should have been obvious from the context, "African" 
refers to a geographic region.

Policies and official documents should probably refer to "the 
Afrinic service region" instead of "Africa", to make it clear that 
Mauritius and other islands are included.  I don't think that 
people discussing things in a mailing list will remember to do 
that, so if you read "African" please understand "in the Afrinic 
service region".
