Canadians Wants More Blacks To Catch Cystic Fibrosis

BRITISH education is just terrific, but those Canadians are so very knowledeable. CBC News reports:

Students at an Ottawa university are pulling out of a Canada-wide fundraiser that provides close to $1 million a year for cystic fibrosis research and treatment, arguing that the disease “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men”–something experts say is untrue. . . .


The student council motion stated that orientation week “strives to be inclusive” and “all orientees and volunteers should feel like their fundraising efforts will serve their diverse communities.”

Anorak researches the matter and discovers that cystic fibrosis affects both men and women. But on the bright side, it is “most common among Caucasians.”
