Stephen Colbert unveiled a new edition of "Better Know A District" on Monday's show, and it was chock-full of racial misunderstandings, confusing questions and barbecue taste tests... like all of his best segments, really.

Sitting down with North Carolina Representative G. K. Butterfield, things got off to an awkward start when Colbert was confused by the congressman's race (Butterfield is the son of mixed-race parents and identifies as African-American). But once that was over, Colbert got right to the tough questions: why Butterfield is prejudiced against the 1% (the REAL minority in America) and why he wants to make six-year-olds pay more for cigarettes.

Watch the full segment above.
