Default Question about Coarse Hair Types and African-Americans

Hi everyone! I recently got my hair analysis and found out I have coarse hair so I did some light googling on coarse hair types and I found this:

Coarse Hair Tips

It says that coarse hair is predominant amongst African Americans and I'm wondering if that's true because I believe I read on this site and maybe in the Curly Girl Handbook that African Americans have super fine hair for the most part. I also remember braiding my friend's fractal curls once and stretching out the strand and oh man was it thin. Especially compared to mine. Again this is an out of the blue question but it's out of curiosity. If it turns out that it is true that most African Americans have coarse hair then maybe I should be looking at the black haircare sites for some guidance and product recommendations even though my curls are a looser pattern.
