Racial profiling or not? : A discourse analysis with a critical perspective of a medial episode (English)
Abstract [en]

The theme of this qualitative bachelor thesis in social work is racial profiling. We have chosen to highlight a specific case in the news media which became heavily debated and sparked discussions whether or not racial profiling is used and applied by Swedish security guards, creating different discourses in various newspaper articles. The thesis has investigated which discourses have been prevalent in news media and what different values and opinions they have voiced using discourse analysis and postcolonial theory. Our findings show that the discourses have mainly considered the side of the security guards in general and that most articles reporting about the events where neutral or siding with the security guards. Some articles where siding with the alleged victim of racial profiling, mainly the debate articles, calling the event a clear example of racism and racial profiling. We also found that many of the articles described the alleged victim with lacking details both about her as a person and the event itself. Our conclusions are that the discourses about the event may suggest that some racist structures can be found among them. Especially regarding the discourses surrounding the alleged victim.
