pourquoi devant devant le nom du continent Africain c'est marqué "Schwarz" signifiant "noir" et pas seulement Afrique? pourquoi cette precision qui n'en vaut pas la peine?

why in front of the name of the African continent is marked "Schwarz" meaning "black" and not only Africa? why this precision that is not worth it?

warum steht vor dem namen des afrikanischen Kontinents "schwarz" und nicht nur Afrika? warum diese präzision, was nicht wert ist?

Should correctly be Sub-Saharan Africa, but that's in English. Not sure how Germans call the region, though.

Note that there are a few geographical areas that colours in their names - like Belarus (lit. "White Russia", still called Weißrussland in German) - the names are so traditional that they are not considered offensive.
