"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Anti-anti-essentialism: a tangent

A man from the Navajo Reservation in Colorado asks the activist, “what tribe do you come from? You call yourself an Indian, but you don’t live on any rez!” [essentialist]

The Indian activist: “What the hell kind of Indian are you? I don’t recall seeing you at the Seige of Alcatraz? I don’t remember your face from Wounded Knee.” [processualist cum essentialist]
