Dictionary.com defines ignorant as "lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned," "lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact," "uninformed; unaware," "due to or showing lack of knowledge or training." People today use the term "ignorant" to define people or statements they find rude or offensive. Unless the person's words actually are based on a lack of knowledge, he is not ignorant. Being rude and offensive is different from being unlearned.

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.

A term used by black people to describe a ghetto nigga who always blaming other people for their lack of responsibility for their actions when they are doing dumb shit.
ghetto nigga: Man you was over there fighting for bush these crackers don't give a damn about us.

black man: Maybe if you stop acting like a niggah then maybe people won't have to treat you like one. You can't blame the white man for nothing because he did'nt tell you to drop out of school like a dumbass and go out on the corner and sell dope. The white man didn't tell you to go rob and kill up one another so you can end up in jail. That is the choice that you made so you can't blame the white man for shit because half of ya'll ignorant ass niggahs don't even vote when it comes to election day and then you wonder why times is so hard because you bring it upon yourself.
