Young Amerikans are totally ignorant of what July 4th represents

The level of stupidity among college students is amazing.

July 5, 2020 - In a video produced by Campus Reform, young Amerikans displayed a complete lack of knowledge about the July 4th holiday, instead bleating about how the country is racist.

When asked what the holiday commemorates and other details concerning the Declaration of Independence, most of those interviewed had no clue.

While some guessed that the united States of America gained Independence after the Civil War, World War I, or even World War II, others complained that the real history of America isn’t being taught in schools.

“I just know that teachers do not want to teach it,” one student claimed, with another ironically chiming in that “Everyone should learn about our history.”

“America was built off slavery,” one respondent said when asked to justify why she believes the country is racist.

Another respondent said President Donald Trump is proof that the country is racist, and commented, “Our country most definitely has a bad legacy.”

None of these genuinely stupid people knew the most basic truths about why America staged a successful Revolution, in what year it took place (one said 1974), and from whom we claimed our independence (the answer is England). These stupid people are supposed to be our future leaders? That is truly frightening.
