BET founder Robert L. Johnson suggests that an answer to black unemployment would be a requirement for all corporations to consider a black prospect for all head positions.

Johnson’s suggestion was inspired by the NFL’s so-called “Rooney Rule,” a rule that requires teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching and senior operations positions.

“The RLJ Rule is principally designed to encourage companies to voluntarily establish a ‘best practices’ policy to identify and interview the tremendous talent pool of African-American managers and African-American companies that are often overlooked because of traditional hiring or procurement practices,” said Johnson in a statement.
