Racism in College Football?

There has been much disscussion about the lack of African American coaches in the NCAA college football division 1 ranks.

It seems to me the case is clear that there are racial barriers in addition to many others:
lack of political connections by many African Americans, cultural gaps between the candidates and the college communities, and a fear of the unknown overall.

What I think should happen is this:

First of all there should be an investigation into hiring practice by the federal government. This should included more than just blacks. What about the lack of Asians and hispanics? Is it because of a lack of interest?

Next, we should highlight and shame the schools into a fair process.

It has worked in the past and it will work this time.

If that still doesn't work, then I would pursue a lawsuit.
