Government enforced race reparations aren’t here yet, but Google has rolled out a plan to show people how to exclusively support businesses based not on the content of the owners’ character but on the color of their skin.

Google Maps’ verified Twitter account revealed that it is rolling out an attribute that it says “makes it easier to identify and #SupportBlackBusiness in the U.S.” The platform also published a companion blog by Head of Google for Startups U.S. Jewel Burks, explaining that the attribute would make it “easier for customers to find and support [Black-owned businesses].” Google further stated that the new program is part of its “ongoing commitment to racial equity.” This is being done in partnership with the US Black Chambers, Inc. or the USBC, the July 30 tweet revealed. Google followed up by urging followers to “Tag a Black-owned business you’d like to see add the icon,” so that the business can be identified by its owners’ race.
