What’s up Nigger : A study on children’s thougths of racism. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the thesis is to find a deeper understanding and knowledge concerning the interpretation of racism as a phenomenon in the everyday life of children in the age of 12-13 years old. To achieve the aim of the thesis I have used parts of the phenomenographic theories as a methodological implement. The conclusions made are represented through four different themes. The first theme deals with the way children apply to verbal overtones of racism in their everyday language. The second theme is about how some children discuss thoughts on integration and assimilation as phenomenon. The third theme deals with the supposed cause of racism adopted by the children. Finally the fourth theme reflects the reasoning held by children concerning the image of the “Racist”. These four themes provide the analytical reasoning for the thesis, which is held through out the complete course of this work.
