This research has as main objective to understand the racism in the contemporaneity, taking as sources, racist postings against black people, transmitted in the social networks Facebook e Twitter. Through the analyses of the contents, we seek to identify the stereotypes for which the black people are still represented at these days. Considering the practices and symbolic dimension of racism, we began our dissertation examining the role of the State in the construction of racial inequalities and the process of black people resistance launch at various historical moments. In a second moment, based on Roger Chartie’s concepts of representation and the concept of social imagination elaborated by Baczko, we show how the ideal of racial bleaching and miscegenation contributed with the formation of a national identity substantiated on the racism. This research enabled us to elaborate a Weblog that offers workshops plans for teachers to have access to pedagogical tools that may contribute to a teaching practice focused on the valorization of ethnic-racial diversity.
