Malcolm:

Once again, you've missed the point. In the U.S.A., "Black" does NOT
mean that a person has to have dark skin. Anyone with "Sub-Saharan
African ancestry--NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE PERCENTAGE--may call
themselves "Black." This is a sociological categorization arising from
historical reasons--NOT from skin color. No photograph of Mr. Joseph
accompanied the article, but I suspect his skin color is not very dark,
from the description given.
