Become a legend in Competitive Programming, contribute to the community as much as you can & then when one day if Mike retires, he might consider you giving that prestigious black name.

Optimal solution is that:

Make a new CF account AND Never ever try to participate in a contest

You can get tanned by sunbathing but I doubt you'll actually become black

Use a marker or something and draw all over yourself. You will become (at least partially) black. Remember to take a shower and DO NOT use a permanent marker.

While you can't become black like Mike without working at CF... You can become semi-black like the people in top rated list. Try that instead.

Either get hired by Mike, or get a one-letter handle and become LGM

    Nobody knows this but every 3k rating, you get a new letter blacked in your handle. So basically you can get whole full black name by getting hooge rating (tho that might take several centuries)
