Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to study experiences of everyday racism in individuals with overseas cultural backgrounds from outside situations. The study was made with five qualitative interviews. Theories that’s been used are about everyday racism, stereotypes, symbolic interactionism and Cooleys looking glass self. The result show that all the respondents have experienced everyday racism in a variety of situations in different places/environments. They have described situations where they have been ignored/excluded, stereotyped, exposed of grossly words and prejudices about their personality. Symbolic interactionism can explain everyday racism based on how the situations are defined, how situations change, which affects the interaction depending on how specific strong symbols are understood; like skin tone and a person looks.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att studera upplevelser av vardagsrasism hos individer med utomeuropeiska kulturella bakgrunder. Teori som använts är hur vardagsrasism kan förstås, stereotyper, symbolisk interaktionism gällande fem hörnstenar och Cooleys spegeljag. Det har gjorts fem kvalitativa intervjustudier där det framkommer att vardagsrasism sker på de flesta samhällsområdena i vardagslivet med undantag för fredade zoner som förorter. I intervjuerna framkom det att vardagsrasismen uttrycks genom exkludering, stereotypifiering, grova glåpord som till exempel blatte och svartskalle, fördomar om ens personlighet och att göras annorlunda/olik andra. Med symbolisk interaktionism kan vardagsrasismen förstås med hur situationer är föränderliga som påverkar interaktionen vilket beror på särskilda symboler; som hudfärg och utseende.
