Ethnicity: The cause of Sleep Apnea?

I recently read an article and it touched on new research associating sleep apnea with ethnicity (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/21/health/how-well-you-sleep-may-hinge-on-race.html?adxnnl=1&adxnnlx=1412310206-gjOJmk2HuIYpTaKEoa2++w). To me, this is absolute nonsense. I wouldn’t want anyone telling me that I have a less chance of success in life because of my ethnicity. What are your thoughts on this subject?
