I don't know how much honor

I don't know how much honor goes with this honor. If the group is recently established, shouldn't it be named the Augusta Majority Professional Networking Group? I'm certain this is a black group honoring a black man. Wouldn't you think they'd realize they're in the majority in Augusta? Well, I guess noticing this is a racist piece of information. Regardless, I'm glad Dr Bedden is being recognized for all of the positive action he's taken in this VERY difficult work situation.
