"I'm not racist, but..." logic.

"Having been deeply perturbed by a personal visit to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I mean no disrespect to the victims and ruined objects of Japan if I say that the same list of objects is destroyed in a different way by the various philosophies of human access. Human-centered philosophy is a Hiroshima of metaphysics"

-Graham Harman, Prince of Networks, p.103

I am, I suppose, enjoying this book, but the style is at times simply unbearable.
