Another "non-discriminatory" disease

I was flacked today by a PR agency declaring in the subject line, "Breast Cancer Doesn't Discriminate" and then stating in the body, "Statistics show that although African American women have a lower rate of breast cancer compared with white counterparts, their mortality rates are at least 9 percent higher."

In other words, in two very important ways breast cancer DOES discriminate. Is nothing so important that it's safe from political correctness?
