    Struct Violence Framing Cards

    Does anyone have any or a decent source for framing cards on structural violence? Specifically about the economy and human rights?

    Most definitely Hendrickson for 6A -- any thoughts on 5A and lower? For 1A, it'll be between Gail: Borden County and Rankin JW. For 2A, I think Slocum HP, Jewett: Leon CR, Sudan MS, and Colmesneil MS are going to make up the Semifinals. 3A is definitely going back to Mildred JM but Buffalo GM will put up a fight. 4A is North Lamar HH no contest. 5A is between Mt. Pleasant CT and Lindale JS, but Lindale is incredibly weak compared to their predecessors.

    Predictions on who will win (or at least go far) in each conference?
  4. don't take this the wrong way but I highlyyyyyy doubt it. she stood up and started her rebuttal with "Judge, the negative team consists of white Americans, so they aren't allowed to negate multiculturalism." My only response was, "I immigrated from Sweden and speak Swedish from home... I have just as much of a right to negate multiculturalism as you do to affirm it... where does race come into this?" I'm pretty sure that's what cost me the round butttt I still advanced into out rounds so, I guess it didn't really matter. I'm pretty sure they saved it for rebuttals so I couldn't ask in crossfire, but 🤷‍♂️
  5. No, it was two totally separate debates against two different teams at two different tourneys I don't think it was being bad K debaters. They were aff and I think were just trying to get a dig in. They were the same race as the judge and the judge already didn't like my partner and I because our coach had to interject and ask her if she would continue flowing (cause for some reason she just stopped in the middle of the 2AC. Like, didn't even try).
  6. Honestly you are a fucking wonderful debater and those people who down vote you because they can't take some time to talk to you as a person need to fuck off, know we (me and my partner) love you and appreciate you. You are NDT material and never ever forget it♥

  7. The entire community has become this hostile, aggravated, constantly P.O.-ed dumpster fire. While the blame is mainly with the debaters (being, again, hostile, aggravated, and constantly P.O.-ed) the blame is at fault too with judges. I've been told I'm not allowed to have an opinion because of my skin color. I've been told that, because I'm autistic, I should be taken out of debate and placed in special ed. This debate did not go as smoothly as it could have, but fault also lies with those who chose to interject and poison...
  8. This is super hard to type out and way easier to say, but basically I'm going for that about 2/3rds of visas/green cards are given to family-sponsored immigrants (ie chain migrants) which limits the amount of non-family-sponsored immigrants that can come here. The MBI system would then be justified through the harms of leaving the current system and (if mentioned) the harms of increasing the number of visa/green cards given out. That's a tradition at my school... It's kind of a time waster to make the neg lose that minute or so. I've had some judges like it, saying it eases them into understanding the case, but I have mixed feelings on it. It's just there for the time being. I may take it out by State. I think it's being a progressive debater. I like the fear factors I don't see an issue with passive aggressiveness... I've never been voted down for that I'm a bit tired of seeing this... Anthony and I already discussed that. It's because you're progressive, I'm sorry. The easiest way to avoid it is to do what I do-- only use "judge," "opposition," "aff team," and "neg team." And if you gotta be specific, just say 1A, 2A, 1N, 2N. Sorry if this was upsetting anyone, I just didn't see the need to ask or know.... Sorry 😶
  9. I was always taught that DA's are on-case and K's are off-case. I just didn't think about linking directly, it wasn't my top concern... Glad to know though! This is proof that I'm old-school. I know the pieces as Link, Brink, Impact. This is actually what my coach is working on with us during our next practice. I knew someone would catch it I usually say that it's a call back to my Barletta 18 card. I guess 'cause I'm in UIL, but that's just weird. We roadmap everything (as far as I know) except the 1AC I think I'm going to drop my funding. I debated on it early in writing the case, but I decided to keep it just in case. The advantages is a good point though-- I'll take out the funding. Yeahhhh most people don't like my rehashes. It's a habit of mine to keep from being undertime. I usually freestyle it with just some bullet points to hit, but some judges liked it, others didn't...
  10. Thanks for the feedback. 90% of what you mentioned I've already thought of and took care of when writing the case. Some of your points though are just from not understanding my point (probably because this is digital and I can't actually convey everything I'm thinking).
  11. Not at all, as long as they aren't like the ones from before.
  12. I'm cool with the RFD being public, though, any discussions I would like to be private
  13. Whenever the judge can, I’d love to get feedback on the round
