Roland, TJMS, 10.31.11: Roland S. Martin/Tom Joyner Morning Show, Bob Johnson Offers The RLJ Rule To Tackle The Black Unemployment Crisis

BET founder Bob Johnson joins Roland Martin on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to discuss the RLJ Rule which is aimed at tackling the African-American unemployment crisis. The RLJ Rule is supposed to mimic the NFL’s Rooney Rule.

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.
