The gist of the linked videos is remarkably simple. A racially 'diverse' set of young... rocket surgeons... in New York City are asked numerous basic questions by an Arab man. Hilarity ensues. I'll be commenting on the highlights for those who just want a quick laugh rather than to watch it all. These videos will be linked in order of latest to earliest.
I've also bolded my very favourite answers.

Answer from black man: **'Thirty? I don't know.'**
8\. 4:16: 'Can you tell me what time this is?' [Holds up an image, correct time is 1:50]

6\. 3:24: 'How many cents are in a dollar?'
Answer from black man: 'Six.'
(Note: To be fair, he completely misses the point and tries counting each type of coin, e.g. 1¢, 5¢, 10¢, 25¢ (note that he says 20 instead of 25), 50¢, $1, which would make him almost correct *if* that was the question asked.)

Answer from White woman: 'Mexico. [...] Russia. [...] Canada.'
8\. 3:48: 'Do you know what two countries border the US?'
Answer from black woman: **'Oh, shit, I don't even know what a country is.'**
9\. 4:24: 'Do you know how many minutes are in one hour?
(Black queer man prances around babbling comically and almost unintelligibly).
10\. 5:11: 'Who fought in the Civil War?'
Answer from same man as #6: '[Asks which civil war: 'first', 'second', 'third'] US against Iraq.'

1\. 2:27: 'Do you know what the four directions on a compass are?'
Answer from what seems like another black tranny: 'A compass? What is that?'
Video 6 (20/05/2022):
The highlight of this one is the Indian accented man who, despite hilariously being dressed for a *graduation* ceremony, doesn't know how many continents there are, guesses that the US is composed of 29 states, has no idea how many years are in one decade, doesn't know when the US was founded, and calculates 3x3x3 as 9.

Another YouTube link:
1\. 1:52: 'Who did we gain our independence from?'
Answer from black man: 'Korea.'

Answer from Asian man: 'Richard Nixon.'
(Note: America is up to its 46th President.)
'Do you know who the first President of the United States was?'
Answer from black man: **'George Floyd.'**
With the videos out of the way, I'd like to offer a point for discussion. Why is that that so many people reflexively *laugh* when faced with a question to which they do not know the answer?
