All three of these look black to me, and Wikipedia says they are cardinals
of the Catholic Church. They aren't the only examples I found.
As to black popes, there is speculation that Victor I (189-198 A.D.),
Miltiades (311-314 A.D.), and/or Gelasius I (492-496 A.D.) may have been
black, with Victor I the most likely. But you are probably thinking of
modern popes only.
