As the politics of progressivism becomes more an examination of social engineering whereby segments of society seek to establish a social pecking order based on achievement of the collective, the progress of Black America still represents the most suspect proposition. While there are more examples of black achievement on an individual basis, there is a decline in wages, jobs and wealth among African Americans in the collective.

Hurdles and Obstacles
In closing out this revealing series on trial and error, I promised to offer up an easy formula for your consideration.† Before I share such; I want to make it clear that unlike some of the politicians, preachers, professionals, and pundits - I donít write as if my way is the way.† I have nothing to lose but ever so much to gain by understanding that your story/version is just as powerful [as mine] if not more so.† Feel free to share.

Tightrope
I started this series on trial and error with a strong one liner from a Baltimore Blogger (Dahgurl) and followed up with a quick piece about being stuck in a tunnel.† This series has caused several readers to weigh in with personal stories.† Some have even expressed a desire to excoriate peers that fail to appreciate their efforts. †



Remember, in all we do, our goal is to harass mediocrity.† One should not tire oneself looking for reward because of expended effort.† A focus on output is what gives successful people the room to roam.†

When you're working hard and nothing is coming in, you ask yourself what's the reason? Someone once told me that favor is not fair and to just be patient for my time will come. I'd already been an entrepreneurial success and wondered if I could do it again. When caught in the tunnel of trial and error exits are always positioned too far in either direction. Being trapped forces action to ooze from your intuition.

In responding to one of my recent columns, someone suggested that Black people can never be of one accord because we are far too diverse.



It's an interesting concept, but one that spits in the face of our actual history and one that ignores the fact that some of us who were born in comfort have little concern for those who were not.



It is part of the American way to blame the poor and the oppressed for their condition.

Trial and Error
In a recent blog post ( http://www.dahgurl.com ) Shawn Mason Spence drafted an interesting piece that included a powerful one liner. She said, "I've thought about plenty, halfway implemented many, but nothing really stuck." Upon reading that phrase, I immediately conducted a team huddle... no sideline coach present. All by myself darting thru deep thought.
