A Canadian University Students Association is causing local outrage after deciding to withdraw support for a Cystic Fibrosis charity because Cystic Fibrosis is a “white disease.” If that’s not bad enough, the same group also noted that it affects mostly men as well
The Carleton University Students Association voted Monday night in favour of choosing a new charity to support during its orientation week in September, in place of Shinerama, which raises money for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The Globe and Mail reported that 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.”
Shinerama foundation CEO Cathleen Morrison noted that CF is a fatal genetic disease that affects males and females equally, and although it is more prevelent among white people, it affects people of European, North African, Middle Eastern and South Asian descent, although black and East Asian populations aren’t immune.
Political correctness gone mad.
