People Sign ‘Support Illiteracy’ Petition
Some people will sign anything, including a petition to 'support illiteracy'. In his latest 'man on the street' video, media analyst Mark Dice asked people to sign a petition to support the spread of illiteracy in our country.
He told one woman who signed the petition that "a lot of kids just aren't reading these days and a lot of adults just aren't paying attention at all. Thank you for demonstrating that". He told another man that people aren't reading or comprehending things anymore and the man replied "they're stupid", right after signing the petition. You know...the petition to support illiteracy.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, the current literacy rate in the U.S. hasn't improved over the past 10 years. Sadly, Dice's video stunt illustrates that point.
