Of course I don't feel inadequate compared to people of mixed race. This sounds a little racist. So white is normal and everyone else is an "exxoticals"?
I think you might want to stick to botany because that's where the term "exxotical" belongs!
Actually, it belongs nowhere because it's not a real word. "Exotic" is a word. "Exxotical" sounds like something you'd see painted on the window of a porn shop.

This thread title wins for stupidity. WTH? BTW. Giselle is 100% German. Doesnt get whiter than that. Jolie has like 1/8 of native I think so she is pretty much white too. Kim K is white: mother white father armenian. I am not sure why people say she is arab. Armenians are white and christian.

Like I said before, my bum cheeks are more exotic than some of the "Europeans" mentioned in the OP.

I haven't heard this term before. I know a person can be exotic. Usually from tropical areas.
Many mixed races are considered biracial. But more and more races are more than two. Many are multible nationalities. The term I heard most recently are called hybrids.

Race and nationality does not make that person successful, its them themselves. It's their personality and ambition.
Stress and life can make a person go nuts too. I.e. Milley.

Exotic is what an older white woman uses to refer to a darker skinned male, in most cases, like 90% of the time. And they use it only to express interest. I have had it happen to me at the frequency of 2 per month to the point that these days it is ANNOYING.

Also, in other usage, they (white men and women) sometimes say someone's accent is exotic.

Oh I get it. Just like I had to correct many to stop saying the oriental boy.

Exotic means one's features are unusual. Said person does NOT need to be multiracial or ambigous looking. Alek Wek comes to mind. She is unusually dark. That makes her exotic.

Exxotical on the other hand means one looks racially ambigous & normally alludes to one being beautiful.

*******s. "racially ambigous" would be by most usage of the word be describable as "exotic."

You can say blue means black till you are red in the face, but it don't make it so.
