You are using the wrong section of the forum. You should post these queries in the ESL forum section Ask a Teacher.

I've moved it.

Quarban Ali, please try to give your threads more helpful titles. "Clever but not having black color" would have been good for this.

Your sentence is not correct. It needs to be:

Although he is clever, he is black.

Please note that most people would find this very offensive, as though you were saying that being black somehow counts as a negative quality.

Or worse, that cleverness is not a trait one should expect to find in a black person.

According to your member profile, your native language is English. Are you sure that is correct?
