The usual procedure is to create a route-map that sets the nexthop to a blackholed address if the advertisment has a specific community string set.
So when a customer advertises an address (rather a /32 network) to you with that string set, it automatically ends up blackholed.

Do you just want a shortcut for that, or you are having issues with community string-based approach?
