Hate Speech Against Migrants and Refugees in the Media PDF Print

Date: 10 February 2016

Region: Europe

Brussels_Meeting_Giulia_Refugees_Hate_SpeechAfter the avalanche that hit a hotel in central Italy in mid-January, a plethora of stories on the endless and brave work of rescuers dominated the media. Italians held their breath during the rescue operation in a race with time. The names, the faces, and the stories of those trapped in the hotel were soon read and shared by the whole country. But it was not until four days later that it emerged that a black man who worked in the hotel as a cleaner was under the collapsed building. No one was looking for him.

It was Faye Dame, a 30-year old man from Senegal who had lived and worked in Italy on a refugee status for three years. Italian media did not overlook the story. Mainstream media had his photos on their front pages and talked profusely about the refugee “with no criminal records” who was trapped under the snow. No other victim of the avalanche was given the same description. Why would they, after all?
