Carleton University Students Association Say Cystic Fibrosis Is "A White Mans’ Disease"

CARLETON STUDENTS CANCEL CF FUNDRAISER AFTER DECIDING IT IS A “WHITE MANS’ DISEASE”
The Carleton University Students Association voted this week to cancel the annual frosh week Shinerama which previously had donated its’ raised funds to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation after they decided that Cystic Fibrosis is a “white mans’ disease” and that their fundraising activity no longer fits into the idea of inclusiveness on their campus or in their particular communities.
In a statement issued by the CUSA they stated that “cystic fibrosis has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” and “all orientees and volunteers should feel like their fundraising efforts will serve their diverse communities.”
The Cystic Fibrosis foundation CEO Cathleen Morrison stated that” I couldn’t understand what could be behind this. Like, have we got the story about Carleton’s motion right?” “Obviously, the information is incorrect.”
No Ms Morrison, you got it right. They really did say that CF is a whitey disease and they really aren’t going to donate any money to you now.
This decision left the foundation scrambling to explain to other donors that CF affects all types of caucasian people, and the foundation says that doesn’t mean whites, but all people of European, North African, Middle Eastern and South Asian descent.

    Maybe it’s time for ‘white men’ to cancel their annual donations to Carleton University and redirect them to the CF people.

    Racism and sexism are rampant in this country. This is a prime example of it. It’s time these politically correct, activist cockroaches got it through their heads that discriminating against people for their race (caucasian) or gender (male)is RACISM and SEXISM.

    What’s the difference between a racist Neo-Nazi and a racist Leftie Activist?

    The Leftie racist is praised for being a Progressive while the Nazi racist is prosecuted for hate crimes.

    It is a shame that they say this, without publishing facts about this ‘only’ affecting white people. My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis, and we go to a support group and there is 3 people from different racial backgrounds. Unless they were misdiagnosed(which I highly doubt), I wonder how they could say that. There are many diseases and disabilities that just so happen to affect a certain race more than others. Does that mean that everyone should stop donating to them? I don’t think so.

    CF primarily affects caucasians. These products of higher learning assumed that meant “white people.” Racism and ignorance usually walk hand in hand.
