Cystic Fibrosis Is Too White to Cure
Finding a cure for cystic fibrosis has been deemed politically incorrect, on the grounds that this awful disease tends to effect those who deserve to suffer — the source of all evil, male Caucasians:
OTTAWA – The Carleton University Students’ Association has voted to drop a cystic fibrosis charity as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, supporting a motion that argued the disease is not “inclusive” enough.
Cystic fibrosis “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” said the motion read Monday night to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it.
Here I was thinking racism was a purely imaginary problem, like global warming. But among progressives, it is not only real but vicious.
As always, the moonbats are wrong on multiple levels:
The rationale for dropping cystic fibrosis as the beneficiary is not correct, [Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation chief executive Cathleen Morrison] said. CF is diagnosed just as often among girls as boys, although the health of girls deteriorates more rapidly, she said. It is commonly considered an illness that affects Caucasians, but that includes people from the Middle East, South America, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
“‘Caucasian’ as we understand it isn’t just white people,” said Morrison. “It includes people with a whole rainbow of skins.”
This means that even some people whose lives are deemed by moonbats to have value are effected. Maybe cystic fibrosis is a bad thing after all.
