SAEZ, Virginia. Racism in the mass media: a study of the press in Argentina (1993-2011). Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.43, pp.163-182. ISSN 0797-5538.

This paper examines the array of racist statements on episodes of violence in the school space, the newspaper of the city of La Plata (Argentina). Given the characteristics of the object of inquiry, the methodological approach was qualitative and the information is analyzed in the framework of the educational discourse analysis. Among the results, we observed that during the eighteen years, a distinction is made between coverage of national and international events. In the first case, there is an association of violence in the school space with young people from socially disadvantaged sectors. For its part, in the coverage of the international level is associated violence to people of color black and native.
