"Bedlam 50 | 2020" (another attempt at some serious reading)

Participation in the 2020 Leadership [Redacted] Program, which was cut short due to the emergence of the Coronavirus in our current location of residence in March 2020, from which I requested a partial refund and was then confronted by the then CEO of the local Chamber of Commerce with regards to an email I sent to the group with regards to the racist undertones of this city, which was outlined (ironically enough) during one of the first meetings of the leadership program; in other words, I live in a covertly racist town and my fellow program members didn't really seem to care, so I left in foul terms ... imho ... after they gave me a full refund, which effectively made me feel as if I were kicked out of the program.
