ABSTRACT
This paper points out the role of racist discourses in the definition and justification of different forms of segregation practices against the population considered as non-white in Ecuador. From the nanative structures of interviews realized with elites representatives, it appears that pejorative ideas about the ethnic majorities with darker skin, mainly Indians and blacks, still exist. There exists in the discourses the disposition to negotiate toward a homogenized mestizo identity, but this position, not only has the bias of denying the various ethnic cultural values of the different indigenous groups still living in Ecuador, but also gives prominence to the image of superiority from the self-qualified whites.
