At The Charlotte Observer, Eric Frazier looks at Donald Trump’s campaign and wonders whether Americans really are as dumb as their international reputation. A snippet:
When I asked why that’s a bad thing, she said the foreign exchange kids tend to presume Americans are stupid unless proven otherwise. They assume Americans aren’t as well-traveled, or as fluent in foreign languages or as knowledgeable about world cultures.
I said what any Good American would: Why don’t they stay home, then?
Oh, she replied, they don’t think our colleges are stupid. Just the people.
