In the US, Spanish is a minoritized language and the anti-immigrant movement has become more important and more powerful over the past few decades. We conduct an analysis of appraisal discourse in blogs written by Latinas with the primary aim of identifying central ideas, i.e. specific themes repeated in said posts and related to the subject of discrimination. We use some of Gee's (2011) discourse analysis tools and Martin and Rose's (2007) three- subsystem model of appraisal discourse. When analyzing the first fifteen posts of ten blogs, we find that the subject of discrimination is frequent, although treated differently in different blogs. A detailed analysis of two posts from two different blogs shows that the bloggers have been victims of discrimination and present their personal narratives of this experience.
