Wake AS Quarters Aff – The Hold

1AC

The weather is the TOTAL CLIMATE and that climate is ANTIBLACK – slavery is propelled into the present as the ATMOSPHERE. An atmosphere that is slave law ARCHIVED and REPEATED into the present as lynch law, as Jim crow, as stop n frisk, the total climate both EXCEEDS and DETERMINES the law itself which SUFFOCATES blacks in THE HOLD OF THE SHIP

Sharpe takes us through the archive in 2016 <Christina. Associate Professor of English at Tufts University. “In the Wake: On Blackness and Being” January 2016. Duke University Press. Pg 104-106. CS https://g.co/kgs/6Jc3ot>

In Beloved, the weather comes, breaks, changes quickly; it “let

move through these environments in which the push is always toward Black death?

THE HOLD IS THE STARTING AND ENDING POINT OF THIS DEBATE. Through the SOCIAL AND PHYSICAL death of the slave, the WHITE CAPACITY to VALUE and ARRANGE ECOLOGICAL RELATIONSHIPS is guaranteed. The ON-GOING DESTRUCTION of the environment and SYSTEMIC INEQUITIES are waves left by the WAKE OF THE SHIP.

Leong (Diana, Assistant Professor of English & Environmental Humanities Graduate Program at Utah University) 2017 (The Salt Bones: Zong! and an Ecology of Thirst, Published January 4th 2016, Isle Journal, Volume 23 Issue 4, November 2016, C.A. https://doi.org/10.1093/isle/isw071)

Philip is acutely aware that the global systems of slavery attempted to define unequivocally the

thirst to consider how they might propose new ways of being “human.”

Antiblackness both STRUCTURES and OPERATES within Asian-American communities, creating the hierarchies within them and COMPOUNDING violence against black people by non-black people. Non-black Asian-Americans have TWO CHOICES, to choose to be a CO-CONSPIRATOR by embracing the hold and surrendering to blackness OR to be an ALLY, an UNCLE CHANG that pushes anti-black coalitions and politics for their OWN gain at the expense of BLACKS. 

Brady and Murrillo explain in 2014 <Nicholas Brady and John Murillo III. “Black Imperative: A Forum on Solidarity in the Age of Coalition” January 26, 2014. https://outofnowhereblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/black-imperative-a-forum-on-solidarity-in-the-age-of-coalition/. CS>

Surrender to blackness.” A grammatical imperative. Grammatical because syntactically it marks a command

AND

imperative. Instead of fetishizing the object, you must surrender to blackness.

 

The hold REPEATS into the PRESENT and into educational spaces like DEBATE – traditional debate functions to enact a curriculum that TRAUMATIZES and RETRAUMATIZES black debaters without producing liberatory strategies – understanding debate as the hold is key to BREAK this violence. THE ROLE OF THE JUDGE IS TO THINK AND ACT FROM THE HOLD. The role of the ballot is to vote for the team that best PERFORMATIVELY and METHODOLOGICALLY confronts the total climate of antiblackness.

AFFIRM THE HOLD

The 1AC is a performance of WAKE WORK, the process of thinking about our RELATION TO THE DEAD that allows a process of MOURNING through ritual and provides a PRAXIS for understanding THE HOLD, how it REPEATS ITSELF into the present, and for fostering resistance in THIS SPACE

Sharpe (Christina, Associate Professor of English at Tufts University and the author of Monstrous Intimacies: Making Post-Slavery Subjects, also published by Duke University Press) 2016 (In the Wake: Blackness and Being, Duke University Press, Pg.20-22, C.A. https://g.co/kgs/6Jc3ot)

world did that and the theory describes the violence of the world.

 

A2 Topicality

Understanding black death and antiblackness as emissions is key – only our frame allows for theory and praxis to resist gratuitous violence

Their interp is bad bc they reduce GHGs to the nonhuman form, only the aff interp allows us to understand how everything is determined by the racial atmosphere

Mawani in 15 <Renisa. “Atmospheric Pressures: On Race and Affect” planetarities.web.unc.edu/files/2015/01/Mawani.Atmospheric-Pressures.docx>

Atmosphere might offer one way to decenter the human as the sole agent of history

Fanon reminds us, creates a viable albeit unpredictable plane for racial politics.

They overlimit the topic and prevent revolutionary v revolutionary debates where debaters can engage with the question of the hold and new ways to resist antiblack violence outside of the state – we are K2 new methods
