    Late last month Uppsala University was found guilty of discrimination against Swedes by the Swedish Supreme Court (Högsta domstolen). Three years ago, the university refused to enroll Cecilia Lönn and Josefine Milander in its Law Faculty even though they had better grades than thirty other students with a foreign background.

    I remember the exact moment in which I heard of this case the first time. It must have been three long years for Cecilia Lönn and Josefine Milander.

    This actually is good news. Keep in mind they were found guilty. In America no one cares. It is generally accepted here that schools run this sort of policy. Everyone deems it appropriate and ethical.

    I noticed this...

    Neither the Supreme Court nor the two women question the principle of positive discrimination, as long as it is practised between candidates who are equally qualified.
    So commies 1 sue commies 2 for not getting into an university yet they both agree it is ok to discriminate against Swedes in SWEDEN. You know what? I'm starting to think it was better these people were not allowed in.

    It is the same, if not worse in the UK, where social engineering is actively carried out by the government. Universities are expected to have a certain amount of non-British (and what they mean by this is: preferrably non-European) students. Oxford and Cambridge are constantly whined at for not having enough minority students. One must wonder what the point of a degree is when nearly half the population has one (as is the government's goal.)

    I should add that I agree with Ricky Roma for the most part. It seems these individuals got a dose of their own venom, and didn't like it.

    I see your point, and I saw it too. But they might have agreed on that just to make their own case stronger. I can't see what relevance their opinions on positive discrimination in general would be to the case, so I take it the defendant lawyer brought it up to discredit them.

    So even if the law is not fair, what good is it to ignore the justice that one can have?

    All in all, this is certainly good news. The girls did the right thing in bringing Uppsala to justice, and eventually they won the case. That's what anybody else can do now, with any university, and expect to win.

    Let me put it this way: if I have to lie to a liberal court of morons about my beliefs (and say my own people should be discriminated against in my OWN country while we at the same time are becoming a minority) in order to get every little advantage in a petty trial, in order to stand a chance to win the case, as far as I am concerned they can keep the money. I will have my clear conscience and my pride every day.

    I think they won because of gender issues, if it would been two guys they might have lost the case. But it's just my speculations, cuz Sweden are more gender orientate compared to Norway and Finland.
