I checked the Veja article.  Bill de Blasio's chidren aren't considered black here.  We'd call them biracial.  I'm not seeing anything about a guy accepted just for a single black ancestor but you said that might have just appeared in the print version of the article.  Any chance you can find it online?   I still think it's irrelevant because they'd let him whether he had a black ancestor or not.

As for reparations and such, I fully agree with.  And so does the NAACP to an extent.  They don't want monetary compensation but for corporations that were complicit and profited from slavery to develop programs such as job training, inner city health clinics, schools, etc.... Things a socially conscious corporation often does anyway.

Man, not saying he was accepted because he was black... I know they accept white guys anyway. What I'm saying is that they accept he calling himself black because he had black ancestors. 

One link that I'm not sure if it's the same guy on the veja article http://oglobo.globo.com/opiniao/raca-como-oficio-16476473 but it's on the same topic... Walter Francis White is the ex-NAACP high up that were white.

Ah, I see.  No idea about their guidelines for recognizing what constitutes someone as black based on heritage.  Can't say I've seen them openly state "this person is black or not".  I'll check that other article later tonight.
