You Got A "C" On The History Of The Civil War Test

Of late, whilst reading comments about various current events issues, such as the ongoing Confederate flag controversy, I have found myself appalled more than once by how ignorant way too many people are about what are known as historical facts, along with being appalled at how readily these ignorant sorts share their ignorance.

It occurred to me that it is likely the majority of those making ignorant comments had their education career end at high school.

Or earlier.

And that the majority of those making ignorant comments were likely C Students.

Or worse.

So, I was thinking, you C Students out there, you know who you are, well, you really might want to think twice before sharing your opinion about anything to do with politics, science, economics, history and other subjects where your knowledge base is a bit undeveloped.

Consider maybe keeping your C Student commenting to subjects like sports and Kardashians and other subjects that don't require being well educated.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration of this suggestion....
