JK Rowling made sure wizards were ignorant due to their prejudices… just like us…

Look at this excerpt from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:

Shouldn’t wizards know what guns are? Think about it… Wizards could be understood as another species of homo sapiens. Homo magicae, or something like that. Now, two advanced species are coexisting within one planet, one unaware of the other; one aware and in hiding. You would think those in hiding would want to stay as informed as possible regarding the other species. Specially since previous encounters revolved around burnings in stakes, and this belligerent species now has nuclear arsenals at its disposal. Yet, the paper needs to clarify for the average homo magicae what a gun is. Not surprising, considering how little interest most wizards gave to the Muggle Studies course at Hogwarts. So now that I think about it, it actually makes perfect sense. JK Rowling made sure wizards were ignorant due to their prejudices… just like us… #harrypotter #prisonerofazkaban #mugglestudies #stanyoucreep #personalspacestan #privacy #goodmanners
