The 1acs attempt to bring blackness to humanity is how

metaphysics disguising ontological terror as inclusivity

failing to realize blackness lacks ontology and thus is barred

from humanity. The 1acs choice of words will lose them the

debate here, words like “ black life” and “dehumanize” all

assume humanity which is barred from blakcness

(Calvin L.-; ONTOLOGICAL TERROR: Blackness, Nihilism, and Emancipation; pp. 11-15)

For the black nihilist, however, the question is this: will the dissolution of

metaphysical Being that Vattimo and Heidegger advance eliminate antiblack violence and

redress black suffering?

and


Ontological Terror wrestles or

tarries with critical traditions designed to exclude black(ness), including,

most of all, Being and ontology.

The law is a tool for terror that pretends universality when in reality

exploiting blackness and solidifying its objectivity as available

(Calvin L.-; ONTOLOGICAL TERROR: Blackness, Nihilism, and Emancipation; pp.75-76)

What I want to discuss now is certain legal technologies, tactics, strategies,

and inventions that perform the work of outlawing, now that we have

outlined its necessity.

practices—this is the twin axes of this



devastating terror.

the aff assumes that by preventing physical death of black

bodies they are saving life. They fail to realize that black

being is excluded ontologically and metaphysically meaning

that blackness is already barred from life. To “save black

life” is impossible in this metaphysical world. The 1ac

doesn’t help black bodies they only put up a smokescreen

that makes it appear like change is happening when

blackness proceeds to be nothingness.

(Calvin L.-; ONTOLOGICAL TERROR: Blackness, Nihilism, and Emanipation; pp. 15-21)

The term free black carries tension within its structure; it brings two

disparate grammars into collusion and produces an ontological

catastrophe.

in order to illumine



the philosophical richness of the black experience in an antiblack world.

They frame the 1ac as a solution to fix or make progress on

antiblackness failing to realize there is no fix to the ontological terror

the non human faces. You cant use antiblack structures to fix

antiblackness. Their reliance on humanity justifies metaphysics that

already always excludes blackness

(Calvin L.-; ONTOLOGICAL TERROR: Blackness, Nihilism, and Emanipation; pp. 1-6)

A deep abyss, or a terrifying question, engenders the declaration “Black Lives Matter.” The declaration, in fact, conceals

this question even as it purports to have answered it resolutely. “Black Lives Matter,” then, carries a

certain terror in its dissemination, a terror we dare to approach with

uncertainty, urgency, and exhaustion.

and

I argue


that blacks are introduced into the metaphysical world as available

equipment in human form.

The alternative is black nihilism --- refusing political hope is

the only metaphysically coherent response to the constant

slaughter of black bodies

“Coda: Adieu to the Human,” pp. 171-172, ZW)

The important task for black thinking (philosophizing, theorizing,

theologizing, poeticizing) is to imagine black existence without Being,

Let our thinking lead us into the “valley of the shadow of death,” and

once there we can begin to imagine an existence anew.
