I looked for the meaning of "exotic" in Spanish today, and I found that we can use it to refer to something or someone who come from a far place or unknow for us. However, some people thinks that call someone exotic is raicist. I don't think it's raicist because the meaning doesn't have anything discriminatory. It's probably the languagues change the meaning of some words or I also think more the culture has influence the meaning of words... That's my humble opinion.

I agree, and it’s the same in English. Depending on the language itself, the culture, and the context of its use, “exotic” can come across as offensive to some people. But I don’t think it’s meant to discriminate either, and it can also be taken as a compliment :) This was very well written, barely any mistakes. Keep up the good work 👏😊
