I guess it’s self certified with no verification process, or do they give a black guy a 1% share like the nursing homes do for shabbos?

It may be an honest mistake as I've read that businesses can opt into that badge but Uber also uses some other lists to automatically give some businesses that badge, so it could've just been pulled from somewhere msitakenly.

Or maybe anyone can identify as black:

Someone I knew who was born in (IIRC) Algeria used to fill out African American on all scholarship and similar applications. He is certainly more African American than those who identify as such.

Who is “they” and what did they know that would make them say that?

Seems like the legal definition "African American" is "a person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa."

There may be a difference between African American and African-American

@Yehuda57 did you ever try?

Haven't tried myself (I don't know that I've ever applied for anything that it would have made a difference), but I heard of a landsman who did with a mortgage, I don't know details.

Admissions/financial aid in college. They were basically saying, "you ain't black."

I have a friend who did it in US for Med School many years ago (said African American then)
My black neighbor is fond of saying the I am more African American then he is

I'm not so good with modern Hebrew, but I think I got the gist of it:

"A message to those people who stop their car at the Microsoft complex and shout up at the workers, 'Hey, you realize you're working on Microsoft Windows (wink wink)': they want you to know that they hear this 200 times a day and that you should not consider a career in standup comedy. Thank you."
