520    Applying grounded theory methodology and method, this 
       qualitative study uncovers and presents a rich, 
       theoretically expressed understanding of the experience of
       salaried Black hospitality and tourism professionals who 
       earn at least $100,000 annually. A 13-step customized 
       research process featuring a novel literature review 
       method, which utilizes researcher pre-data collection 
       assumptions as a framework for conceptualizing and 
       processing an unwieldy literature, enhancing post-data 
       analysis, and developing research conclusions, is 
520    Twenty loosely structured, open-ended, and in-depth 
       interviews (12 male) are the singular data collection 
       tool. An exhaustive analysis of participant transcripts 
       resulted in 5,337 coding incident s, or coins, and yielded
       30 subcategories. Respondents report a wealth of 
       opportunity, guidance, and support and are well respected 
       by the White power structure. But while there is some 
       cause for celebration, there is a lingering fear of being 
       regarded as outsiders striving to fit in and become full 
       citizens of American enterprise 
520    With 1832, 1040, 903, and 826 coins, respectively, 
       discrimination, experience, relationships, and excellence 
       surfaced as the factors most relevant to success. In 
       addition, active awareness materialized as the core 
       concept integrating and explaining the entire emergent 
       theory, which is dubbed AADERE (pronounced add-EAR) and 
       denotes active awareness in discrimination, experience, 
       relationships, and excellence 
520    The AADERE model holds that aspirants must: (1) recognize 
       the pervasiveness of workplace and social discrimination 
       and proactively avoid negative perceptions, (2) appreciate
       the importance of relevant and broad-based work experience
       and subject area expertise and focus on developing the 
       same, (3) build and maintain authentic and quality 
       interpersonal relationships, and (4) understand the 
       criticality of excellence in how Blacks present themselves
       in predominantly White corporate America and constantly 
       achieve distinction in various aspects of job performance.
       As well, the model articulates the following theoretical 
       propositions: (1) Managerial success increases as active 
       awareness of discrimination, experience, relationships, 
       and excellence increase, (2) The higher the level of 
       active awareness, the less of an issue is discrimination, 
       (3) As active awareness increases, experience, 
       relationships, and excellence increase, and (4) Managing 
       discrimination is the greatest success consideration 
       followed by experience, relationships, and excellence 
520    Ultimately, this study heralds the advent of an exciting 
       area of research as the substantial ground broken uncovers
       a fresh stream of important and practical inquiry that can
       positively transform hospitality by helping the powers 
       that be and that could be work together to level the 
       corporate playing field and maximally attract and optimize
       the profuse talents of diverse individuals
