Thanks Slashdot:
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.
If they think I should die, then what do I think they should do?

Just about every disease has different infection rates across different races and sexes with some contained to only one group. I anxiously await this groups rules for the proper infection distributions that must be obtained before a disease is politically correct enough to back the fundraising for cures.
