CTV.ca | Fundraiser canned on claims disease affects only whites
What the hell?
Wow. It's like saying we should stop aids research or heart disease fund raising because it affects black people a few times more than white people.
I guess even DISEASES need to make sure to be "diverse."
This goes beyond WTH into 'WTF is WRONG with you' territory.
I don't use this word too much, but those people who passed this motion are ******ed.
I have found that only about half the population is susceptible to breast cancer. STOP RESEARCH NOW!!!!!!
When you think about, isn't it the disease that's discriminating? And if anything, shouldn't a student government interested in diversity and all those other buzzwords be all about helping to fight a racist disease?
Way to go, Carleton U. You've shown us once again what a huge oxymoron Student Government is.
Student Government's only function is to put all the idiot assholes together in one room so the rest of us can go have a little fun in the real world.
This is funny 'cause it's true, but unfortunately, this is a case where those idiot assholes are affecting people in the real world also.
What a bunch of absolute cretins.
That's cool, we can stop fundraisers for Sickel Cell since that only affects, I dunno, black people...
What a stupid move.
New research shows that uncurable diseases only directly affect the chronically ill. Why should we try to help the people who are only going to be sick? That's discrimination.
That sucks, I know it was a huge part of orientation week here.
I can say with certainty that the only function of the student government at Pitt is to:
1. Decide who gets more money: the Black Action Society, Hillel, or the Rainbow Alliance, as they bicker over field trip and food money at the expense of other groups.
2. Spend large amounts of money on stupid things, like over $70 THOUSAND on plastic Panther statues which were then raffled off to said groups who just painted them blue or gold and scribbled a few stencils on them. Nice.
3. Ensure that every square inch of Pitt gets covered with as many homecoming flyers as possible.
It doesn't surprise me.
I smell lawsuit!
Fuggin' honkies can cure they own diseases, they don' need no fundraiser!
*Facepalms* I'm ashamed to be reading this... to be a Canadian and see this ignorance. This is absolutely ridiculous.
It's from a university student council though. I'd shocked if they weren't showing this kind of bigotry.
I was thinking the same thing. Shoot the idiot who put a stop to the fundraising. One less dumb person to pass comment on this earth.
On the same note, should that Student "Government" (I use the term loosely) withdraw their support of sicle cell fundraiser because that disease only affects dark skinned people?
They are a bunch of idiots.
