Adjective
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.

A term that can be used to generalize a group of people, I.E. a Religious Fanatic. An Ignorant person is anyone that views the world through a tiny, close mind. Can also be applied to these set mind-types or a persons social status--- 1. A term used to describe a Republican. 2. A term used to describe a Raciest. 53. A term used to describe a Bigot. 4. A term used to describe a Homophobic male or female. 5. A term used to describe a Redneck. 6. A term used to describe a Gang Member. 7. A term used to describe a Creationist. 8. A term used to describe a Criminal. (((Stupid is not considered Ignorant. Ignorant being defiant of understanding, showing compassion, or learning. Stupid meaning just not yet understanding.)))
Republican's just seem Ignorant to me. They hate, they kill, they show little compassion for anyone born different. A group that only seems to care about White-Christian-Straight-Males. It is just sad that in to 21st century, there is still people with the Ignorant vies of the 1950's. I guess hate never dies, it just finds a new enemy.
