Mark Dice, the guy we’ve posted about twice (here and here) lives in California and occasionally goes around and asks people questions. He does this for various holidays and polarizing political topics.
Here is his Fourth of July YouTube video in which he asked residents of California various questions about the Fourth of July: what year we declared independence, what country we broke away from, who were some of the founding fathers, etc.
Bottom line is, the Americans did not know why there is a celebration today; they celebrate it, but they do not know what they are celebrating.
Even the Italian man on vacation knew the answer to the question he was asked! It’s really sad.
