RODRIGUEZ JAUME, María José. “New Racism” From the Perspective of “Quiet Migration”: Interracial Adoption in Spain.Translated byFernando Llanas. Migr. Inter [online]. 2019, vol.10, e2153.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0279.

The increase in international adoptions of minors (quiet migration) all over Spain has coincided in time with the rise of immigration. The links between these two phenomena give rise to a hybrid line of research focused on the racial experiences shared by both the adopted population and the immigrant population. A comparative analysis of data coming from three public opinion research sources reveals: (a) the presence of “racism without race” within Spanish society, even though phenotypic differences play a determining role in the social construction of race; and (b) a low “racial awareness” amongst interracial adoptive parents, which leads them to reproduce the ideology of “color-blind racism.”

Keywords : colorblind racism; interracial families; international adoptions; ethnic minorities; Spain.
