1. Having the lack of knowledge, or background/factual information of a particular thing in general. However, the effect in which this person will be proceeding with their "unproven knowledge" imbedded in their mind as if factual information, they, in turn, will plan on using it in the future to make false and incorrect statements based on what they didn't know about the particular thing, or may have heard as a majority of votes for.

And being ignorant does not mean stupid. There's a big difference between the two words.
1. During World War Two, in an American city(in the U.S.), two ignorant policemen arrested an Asian man who is in charge of a small store because he looked like a Chinese spy when he was really Japanese and not a spy.

2. Derek walked up to Shavam, noticing that he looked like he was from India, and asks him, "Are you Indian?" Shavam replies, "Yes." Derek then asks, "Say somethin' Indian." Shavam, confused, walks off. Kaitie, who was watching the whole conversation, walks up to Derek and tells him he is ignorant because of what he said.

3. Rebecca turned on a lamp and the bulb went out, so she went to get a new lightbulb, leaving the lamp switched to "ON". Freddy, her ignorant little brother, saw the bulbless lamp, and wondered what would happen if he stuck his finger in the lightbulb socket of the lamp, not knowing that he would get shocked.

The most offensive word when used in reference to upper and upper middle class whites. Because so much of high white culture is based on being smarter than everyone else calling one ignorant is the most offensive term one can insult a white person with. It is the equivalent of calling a black person the n-word when used from non-whites towards whites. WARNING: use sparingly.
White guy: "Excuse me gentlemen will you let me get to my car?"
Black guys: "Stop being IGNORANT."
White guy: "Why?!!!" as an infinite discombobulation washes over.

A word that a person uses in an argument that makes them sound like they know more than the other person. Usually used by atheist assholes.
Theist: There is a god.
Atheist: How about you do some research and look at the facts, you are so ignorant!

Theist: Happy Birthday, Jesus!
Atheist: Christmas is based on a Pagan holiday, it has nothing to do with Jesus. You Christians are so ignorant!
Theist: I'm celebrating the birth of my Savior, it doesn't matter what day it is on.

What you are if you meet someone you dont even know, ask them to be your gf/bf one week later, and by the second week, tell them you love them. And while doing so, hurting the one who actually cares for you and not even having the decency to appolagize.
Wow, that boy over there with the bad haircut is very ignorant because he thinks he thinks he loves someone he doesn't even know.
