Sweden did racist experiments until 1950s

Recommended Posts

Children from Sweden's Tornedalian minority were subjected to racial biology experiments as late as 1951, a preliminary study commissioned by Sweden's Ministry of Culture has concluded. 
At least 150 students were subjected to skull measurements at school, in experiments apparently based on the now-debunked pseudoscience of craniometry, which was used as a way of classifying different races. 

These tests took place at schools in 14 different villages, according to the study which was based on interviews with 30 Tornedalian pensioners. It was presented to Culture Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke on Monday. 
 
Tornedalians come from Tornedal, a region which straddles the Finnish border at the far-North of the Gulf of Bothnia, and speak the Meänkieli language, which is related to Finnish. 

Very vile and disgusting! I have no respect for the people who did that!

OT: This kinda surprised considering Sweden is one of the most liberal countries in the world, but i'm not shocked.
