exceptionalism, to a specificity of anti-Black racism, inherent structurally and ontologically in the dominant WASP discourses of Black identity, culture, space, race, and humanity. Equating the WASP racial discourses of contemporary Blackness with the legitimizing racial discourses surrounding and supporting chattel slavery, Afro-Pessimism separates the structural and ontologi- cal positions of American Indians, Latin Americans, Asian Americans, and all other ethnic groups (all presumed “junior partners” of WASP civil society: Wilderson III, The Black Liberation Army 13) from


: 248) Why, though, did modern forms of individual privacy only develop a few cen- turies ago? As Jürgen Habermas demonstrates, the end of absolutism, the abol- ishment of the feudal system, and the emergence of a modern civil society in the eighteenth century brought with it the formation of a ‘private,’ bourgeois sphere, a “bürgerliche Gesellschaft” (Habermas 1990: 67), that self-confidently set itself against the ‘public’ state apparatus (cf. Habermas 1990: 63-67; McKeon 2005: xix- xx; Ariès 1989: 8). Society had grown larger, new methods of communication had

– also linking state practices such as mass and compulsory education with civil society’s free associations and discussions.“ (Poblete 2008: 317) Die Konstruktion der Nation und der liberalen Subjektivität über literarische Erzäh- lungen können wie folgt systematisiert werden. Mit Habermas (1969) kann die Her- stellung politischer Öffentlichkeit ausgehend von literarischer Öffentlichkeit begrif- fen werden. Die beiden Öffentlichkeitssphären verschränken sich miteinander und bilden einen gemeinsamen Raum von Öffentlichkeit, der von der privaten wie der

. Brown disputes Young’s claim for similar reason when arguing that “If he is ‘at home’ anywhere, it is in the sphere of civil society insofar as his nature is expressed there and he performs all of his signifi- cant activities there.”70 Striking is her implied questioning if men ever feel at home, which further challenges male homeliness “at the expense of her home- lessness”. In accordance with earlier evaluations of Kent’s failing masculinity, the officer’s homelessness calls to attention the social pressure on men to per- form gender stereotypes of toughness and
