This study explores social judgments about ethnic exclusion from the perspective of ethnic minority children living in Spain. The study was conducted in Madrid with a sample of 72 Latin American chil­dren and adolescents between 6-17 years of age. We used a clinical semi-structured interview. Participants were presented with a picture depicting a Latin American child being excluded from a birthday par­ty. They had to describe the exclusion situation and provide an eval­uation of it (right or wrong). Also, they had to justify their judgment. Additionally, an unexpected finding was obtained: some children tended to blame the excluded child, attributing to him/her responsi­bility for his/her own exclusion.
