The average IQ in "black" African countries is 70. Presumably, everyone reading this knows that "average" does not apply to every individual, and that those with relatively higher intelligence will generally have more income, more education, more wealth, be healthier, live longer, and so forth. In Africa, such people tend to live in the cities.
Finding a few examples of successful Africans does not change the overall picture. Most of the "black" African countries are shitholes, infected with political corruption, horrible education, minimal sanitation, horrible healthcare, and low, low life expectancy. And Democrats want to PROMOTE immigration from such countries.
And if anyone says, "This is STUPID!" they call them a "racist."
Fuck you all very much.
Be that as it may, you've provided nothing showing the germanity of relationship between the average IQ of people who reside in sub-Saharan African countries with the intellectual capacity and circumstances of sub-Saharan African immigrants who come to the U.S. As it stands, all you've done is cite (conjure?) a statistic that, as presented, is useful as little other than an answer in Trivial Pursuit: White Supremacist Edition.
What are some of those circumstances and demonstrated intellectual capacities?

Sub-Saharan immigrants were more likely to be proficient in English and speak English at home than the overall U.S. foreign-born population, largely because a majority came from countries where English is an official language. In 2015, 25 percent of sub-Saharan Africans spoke only English at home, versus 16 percent of all immigrants. Furthermore, 27 percent of these immigrants (ages 5 and over) reported limited English proficiency, compared to 49 percent of the overall foreign-born population. (Source)
Sub-Saharan immigrants have much higher educational attainment compared to the overall foreign- and native-born populations. In 2015, 39 percent of sub-Saharan Africans (ages 25 and over) had a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 29 percent of the total foreign-born population and 31 percent of the U.S.-born population. Somalis had the lowest educational attainment of all sub-Saharan Africans, with 11 percent having graduated from a four-year college.
From what countries hail sub-Saharan Africans who hold at least a bachelor's degree?
Nigerians -- 57% holding at least a bachelor’s degree
South Africans -- 57% holding at least a bachelor’s degree
Kenyans -- 44% holding at least a bachelor’s degree
Ghanaians -- 40% holding at least a bachelor’s degree
Liberians -- 32% holding at least a bachelor’s degree
Ethiopians -- 29% holding at least a bachelor’s degree

I don't have any idea of why you think Democrats "PROMOTE" immigration form such countries. What Democrats do is promote immigration based on a variety of criteria that do not discriminate on the basis of race. AFAIK, as far as I can tell, except for the case of refugees having an immediate acute need for asylum, Democrats don't promote that immigrants be drawn from any given country.
When one proposes that, on account of their sub-Saharan African origins be denied acceptance onto the rolls of folks who are granted the opportunity to become U.S. citizens, one is not rebuked for being racist out of some contumelious yearning their opponent has but rather because the notion itself is a racist one and, last I checked, the people who advance racist notions are racists.
a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles
Your tacit assertion that the observed average IQ in sub-Saharan Africa is 70 is attributable to those individual's being black conforms "hook, line and sinker" to the very definition of racism.
That said, there is some modicum of hope individuals who cleave to and propone racist notions: IQ is alterable.

How to Increase IQ in Adults
One way to start increasing one's IQ is to learn "inside out" the various irrational forms/modes of thought and, in turn, refrain from composing, founding or imbuing one's arguments with them. A good place for doing that is here -- Introduction -- however, one must be aware that that site's explications are the "Cliff Notes" versions of what those fallacies "work" and how they're structured.
