That's interesting, indeed. There has always been lots of very good black fighter pilots. Just look up the Tuskegee Airmen, and of that group, who can forget General Daniel "Chappie" James? He's an American hero.

Also look up people like Pappy Boyington, a "Native American" fighter pilot in WWII.

And here's an interesting news article about how the first black South African fighter pilot has gotten the chance to fly the new Swedish Gripen fighter.

I will point out, however, that the best fighter pilots in the world are Americans, Brits/Canadians/Aussies, and Israelis.
