    It's so obvious what whatever senator from the Old Confederacy meant.  Black = "exotic."  He couldn't say a black person is black or African American and that's what his Republican constituents don't like, so the senator pointed out that his constituents find black skin "exotic."

    It's ludicrously naive and outright stupid that Harkin and the other senators seem to genuinely take obviously racist statements at face value.
