This contribution intends to deepen the relationship between the mediatization of the migration phenomenon called "refugee crisis" and a way of using Facebook, in order to understand the role of a new public subject in performing discriminatory practices built discursively in the daily experience of living the web. The essay ana-lyzes the comments practice as a discursive construction tool adopted by "ordi-nary" and scattared users, recognized as the protagonists of social media. The re-sults of the study show that despite the majority of the comments analyzed do not spread explicit manifestations of hate speech, they use an argumentative dis-course that seems acceptable and licit, constructed through processes of rationali-zation and legitimation.
Keywords: Refugee crisis; critical discourse analysis; networked publics; users’s comments; social media; online racism.
