This is sooooooooo depressing. I am European and have never come across this kind of extreme extremism. How can people do this to children and why doesn’t the state intervene?
Hi Uli ( German I guess ? ) and welcome to the forum.
The black man with the twins was obviously just looking for a way to make money at the expense of his children.

We have an educational problem in the US and we have always had it.
We produce some of the best educated people in the world along with millions of blithering idiots.
Also, being intelligent in the USA doesn’t have the same social standing it has in many other countries.
It is often even frowned upon.
You could call it the tyranny of the dull.
I don’t know where this dislike comes from but it is certainly not serving us.
It is a sad comment but there are just too many people here who value looks, material possessions and the consolation of old fairy tales over schooling and developing your mind, and it shows.
