Expresiones de racismo y discriminación en grupos autistas en Facebook

Gabriel Pérez Salazar, Carlos Rafael Hernández Rodríguez


Based on a qualitative approach and the use of ethnographic techniques such as the semi-structured interview and participant observation, an analysis is presented of how diverse racist and discriminatory expressions take place within a non-representative and non-probabilistic selection of “autistic” closed groups in Facebook, in which young people from all Latin America participate. Results suggest that, although the observed racism correspond to aspects based on characteristics such as ethnic group and skin color; this form of discrimination is also present from diverse cultural issues.
