How come there are black Saudis if Saudi Arabia never had colonies in Africa?

I have nothing against black people. I'm just curious about how can there be black Saudis if Saudi Arabia never had colonies in Africa.

    There aren't. But Saudi Arabia imports labor, as all developed countries do, and their labor come largely from Muslim African countries and the poorer countries in the Middle East.

    SaudiARabia in the past was a crossroads meeting place for traders coming from all corners, north south east west. in the silk and spice trades.. they would stop in Mecca and sell their goods.. loads of travelers stayed and settled in Mecca.. married into the tribes of people there.. There are people of all races/colors in SAudiarabia.. (I live in Saudi), there are blonde haired, blue eyed, snow white skinned Saudis, brown skinned, oriental looking Saudis, black african looking Saudis, all the race spectrum... When Saudiarabia became a nation, they encorporated everyone within its borders as legal Saudis, regardless of their original origin...
