would you say there are alot or alittle bit of african american orthodox christians out there?
I don't know what "alot and "alittle bit" means.
Coptic and Ethiopian are both ancient African churches with very large presences in America. The majority of "African Americans" are descendants of slaves from the atlantic slave trade. There is a movement within this particular African diaspora towards orthodoxy. I don't know how large it is, but Im sure they could use help. There are prominent African American community leaders and scholars who have converted to orthodoxy.

There was a movement in the early part of the 20th century that led to the formation of a non-canonical African Orthodox church in america. There were talks with the OCA about joining them to the greater eastern orthodox body that didnt fully pan out because of the turmoil of the times. I know of one parish that still exists from this movement, but most ended up joining the African Methodist Episcopal denomination which also formed out of the same movement (Marcus Garvey UNIA, consequently whose birthday just passed a few days ago), and many joined the recently formed Pentecostal movement which besides being a religious movement, was also a racial unity movement. Many African slave descendants seek orthodoxy to reconnect with their severed roots. I have a several relatives that are descendants of captured slaves brought to america, when we have larger family gatherings they have told me they know friends that are converts through the work of our coptic brothers, including one who became a priest.
All orthodox in america descended from Afrikans. The orthodox church is the product of afrikans fulfilling God's commandments!
Lord have mercy
