Jag känner mig inte jättesvensk i Sverige : En intervjustudie om afrosvenska individers upplevelser av rasism i Uppsala
Sammanfattning: Sweden has a prominent black community consisting of over 300 000 people which are referred to in this essay as afro-swedes. Studies on afro-swedes have increased significantly in the last decade. However, further studies on afro-swedes need to be made in order to better understand the racism they face and endure in their daily lives. This essay, therefore, aims to investigate four afro-swedes' experiences of racism in the city of Uppsala, as well as their view of racism in Sweden. The interlocutors' experiences are analyzed and explained through the theory of intersectionality and theoretical concepts such as: Swedish exceptionalism, afrophobia and racialization. The results of this essay are derived from four semi-structured interviews with afro-swedish residents of Uppsala. Two questions were formed through the course of this study: How do Afro-Swedish residents of Uppsala perceive Swedish racism? What differences and similarities are there in their experiences of racism in Uppsala? The principal conclusion is that the afro-swedish interlocutors live with two forms of racism, they describe these as “classic’’ racism and “hidden” racism. These racisms take shape against them in different ways and in different places based on three primary intersectional categories; race, age and gender.
