It is scientific research, which proposes continuity to other research fostered by the Scientific Initiation Program from the University de São Paulo rector (RUSP) by the same author and orientation as the present research. The current research aims to build on the theoretical topics of family, education, racism, and racial and family hierarchy, affection and affectioness, in order to understand ways of (de)legitimation of racism in family dynamics; Discuss the relationship between prejudice, discrimination (especially racial), affections and theories of affection; Analyze technical group intervention in delegitimization of racial hierarchies within the family to therefore contribute to the field of social psychology about families and racial relations. Results will be analyzed for the production of an intertext covering all the interviews, the literature related to the research themes - family, affection, racism, delegitimization of racial hierarchies, education - and the reflections that arise during the research process, beyond the possibility of building a technical intervention on the issue.
