IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY!

There is a big difference between ignorance and stupidity. My cleaning lady for instance: she is ignorant, but not stupid. Sometimes ignorance can cross the line and become stupidity. For example, I asked her why she did not become an American citizen which had certain advantages for her. She replied: “ Someone told me I would have to step on and spit on the flag of my country when I am sworn in as an American.”
