"People are stupid" is itself technically awkward, though we are used to hearing it. "People" is a collective term, while "persons" refers to individuals. So people are not stupid, persons are stupid.

However, Merriam-Webster acknowledges that "persons" is switched with "people." eg - "salepeople" instead of "salespersons."
