Political Correctness or Racism?

I am not one to get all riled up over something simple but when it affects my family I will have a righteous anger. I know that Cystic Fibrosis awareness is not what it should be (I hope to try and change that) but the ignorance that college is showing is absolutely ridiculous. I know that people fund sickle cell research which some people could say is an African American disease (I know this is not necessarily true because I had a great aunt with it) however I see nobody excluding it from fundraising campaigns.

I am not trying to turn this into a race matter but it appears that these students already have. Please read and spread awareness about CF. We need all the proper education out there so that this NEVER happens again.
