  • physics is based later in his life he also became a vocal advocate for civil
  • rights in the US describing racism as a disease of white
  • people in 1946 but 20 years earlier he had considerably more questionable
  • feelings on the matter in 2018 the German physicists tribal
  • Diaries were published written between 1922 and 1923 the Diaries included
  • several racist sexist and xenophobic sentiments specifically a deep distaste
  • for Chinese people he described the Chinese as industrious filthy obtuse
  • people and the nation as peculiar and herd-like but the real brunt of
  • Einsteins cruelty was brought upon his first wife on top of his regular affairs
  • he also saw her with a grueling to-do list of wifely duties the list decreed
  • that millibar Moritz was to expect no affection from and renounce all personal
  • relations with her husband unless necessary for social reasons moorage
  • even had to stop talking and leave the room the moment he asked but sadly
  • despite Einsteins actions it's quite difficult to point out physics number
  • nine Steve Jobs and the helm of Apple Steve Jobs revolutionized and
  • reinvigorated at the world of consumer technology it's not always clear what he
  • actually did at Apple but he brought them back from near bankruptcy to
  • eventually become the world's first trillion-dollar public company Jobs
  • holds an almost godlike status in the world of tech bar to this regard
  • frequently came at the expense of those closest to him Jobs famously cheated
  • friend and co-founder Steve Wozniak out of payment for an Atari game he built
  • but he acted the worst towards his daughter Lisa I say daughter because
  • that was the official result of a DNA test Jobs took after years of denying
  • Lisa was his Jobs even lied in a deposition that he was infertile camión
  • Time magazine the twenty-eight percent of the male population of the United
  • States could be the caller once it was scientifically proven that Lisa was his
  • he started paying $500 a month in child support but for that figure didn't even
  • change days later when in public and jobs valuation rose above
  • 200 million dollars while Lisa and her mother survived off welfare payments
  • number eights Helen Keller after an illness resulted in the loss of her
  • sight and hearing when she was just 19 months old
  • Helen Keller went on to become one of the most inspirational figures in
  • history she learned words through touch and
  • became the first deafblind person to earn a bachelor's degree Keller was also
  • a prolific campaigner for women's suffrage labor rights anti militarism
  • and the rights of disabled people but for all of her progressive ideals for a
  • time Keller had a considerably darker stance on disability in 1915 Keller came
  • out in support from eugenics specifically she believes the children
  • born with disabilities that restricted them from contributing to society
  • weren't owed the same right to life as others she claims that puny
  • sentimentalism had obscured the truth that human life was only sacred if it
  • had used to itself and to the world she suggested that in the case of paralyzed
  • unthinking creatures a jury of physicians should convene to dictate
  • whether the child at a right to life if not Keller described Assad's death as
  • the reading of the human garden thankfully though Keller later wrote
  • articles denouncing this survival of the fittest mentality number seven George
  • Washington according to legend America's first president was unable to tell a lie
  • but George Washington's rose-tinted legacy was as factually accurate as his
  • wooden teeth Washington was famously so humble that he rejected a salary of
  • $15,000 a year when appointed as commander-in-chief of the Continental
  • Army instead he only asked that his living
  • expenses were covered during this time of service nice bite right well this
  • selfless act saw Washington rack up a $6,000 alcohol budget in just seven
  • months around 75 times the annual salary of the privates at that time and 110,000
  • dollars adjusted for inflation the continental congress also footed the
  • bill for a $3,800 retreat to New Jersey numerous financial loans for his friends
  • crates of limes and a play he put on for his birthday now this is a gross misuse
  • of funds already but what's worse is that Washington did all the
  • his army starved severely lacking in food and supplies one sick for the
  • American army died at the Valley Forge in Pennsylvania with Washington
  • suggesting they forage for food in surrounding towns and cities all while I
  • live lavishly on the American diet number six mother Teresa in 2016
  • Pope Francis officially declared Mother Teresa as a saint a title that requires
  • two miracles to be performed for this Teresa cured two people of their tumors
  • this has been heavily disputed by doctors who actually worked on the case
  • but otherwise it's generally agreed that she was a pretty good person
  • well in fact Mother Teresa's charity work has faced widespread criticism from
  • those who witnessed it 4-1 critics like Christopher Hitchens have
  • accused this who've been largely self-serving and mostly a front for
  • recruitment for the Catholic Church she built churches in third world regions
  • that really needed hospitals and even when she formed the missionaries of
  • charity in Calcutta supposedly to help the sick and dying the conditions often
  • may patients suffer more needles were reused the rooms were dirty and under
  • stops and one documentary even compared photos of the missionaries to the ones
  • of bergen-belsen concentration camp she described the patients suffering as
  • beautiful but received quality medical care herself which explains why it's
  • estimated that only 7% of the millions of dollars in donations went to
  • charitable causes and most of these donations came from famously corrupt
  • politicians and dictators number five Chris Kyle the most deadly sniper in US
  • history a decorated Navy SEAL and the subjects of an oscar-nominated biopic
  • Chris Kyle is frequently hailed as an American hero after four tours in Iraq
  • cold edek ated himself to helping disabled veterans and those suffering
  • from PTSD but in his best-selling autobiography Kyle made some disturbing
  • revelations in the book Coe describes how he loved killing and talked about
  • how fun he found it you'd hope that Kyle Butte is 160 confirmed kills as a
  • necessary evil in wartime Byrd's his book simply explained how he hated the
  • Iraqi people who he described as damn savages that he didn't give a
  • word for sex about but as disturbing as is to think that Kyle had such a hatred
  • for those he was sent to protect it didn't seem to stop when he returned
  • home he claimed that after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans
  • he took a perch atop of the Superdome and killed roughly thirty meters with
  • his rifle this has heavily been called into question but it does paint a
  • troubling picture of the American Hero especially after he himself bragged
  • about looting Araki homes number four John Lennon revered by some as the
  • greatest songwriter at all time John Lennon's mantra of peace also made him a
  • personal hero for many but Lennon rarely practiced what he preached Lennon was an
  • abusive father to his first son Julian who he would smack for as little as a
  • bad table manners this was all before he abandoned him at age five to start a new
  • family with Yoko Ono a serial cheater Leonard had met Ono when he was with his
  • first wife Cynthia and proceeded to cheat on Ono with his assistant as if
  • his constant Affairs weren't enough for the women in his life to enjoy Lennon
  • was also a famed domestic abuser he hid both of his wives but also in his
  • own words any woman that's right this isn't just an accusation made against
  • her dead rock star Lennon openly discusses his abuse in fact just two
  • days before he died he spoke to playboy about it he explained it is the most
  • violent people who go for love and peace essentially that's just a poetic way of
  • saying he's an abusive hypocrite number three ulysses s grant America's 18th
  • president isn't remembered as one of the country's best commanders-in-chief bard
  • sig ulysses s grant made his mark on American history as the commanding
  • general of the Union Army during America's Civil War this was
  • instrumental in the freeing of America's slaves not all of them Burton that's
  • another story however while grant is seen as a pivotal
  • figure in the freeing of four million slaves is much less documented exactly
  • what he wanted to do with him although he believed that African Americans
  • shouldn't live in indentured servitude he also didn't think that the freedmen
  • kurtal should integrate into American society to solve this Brown devised a
  • plan to annex the Dominican Republic not a cost of 1.6 million dollars and
  • literally just sent all the there he even got the country's
  • president on board with the promise of $100,000 and had famed anti-slavery
  • Senator Charles Sumner sign off on the ridiculous scheme thankfully some inner
  • source sense and form of the Treaty which failed to pass the Senate then
  • throwing the time.he ban Hebrews from three states and he's not exactly the
  • roast of Champions history pays lass number two Gandhi having led his country
  • to independence from colonialism Gandhi's title as India's greatest
  • leader seems untouchable but one book about his early years in South Africa
  • has claimed that Gandhi was a vocal racist and supporter of segregation the
  • authors of the South African can be claimed that he believed power should
  • remain in white hands they also claimed Gandhi used to rocketry terms for black
  • Africans and was strongly that they didn't mix with in news if this sounds
  • kind of hypocritical wait until you hear Gandhi's approach to the chastity be
  • preached according to biographer Chad Adams Gandhi was somewhat of a sex
  • addict even leaving his father's deathbed to sleep with his
  • sixteen-year-old wife at 38 he officially about chastity and implored
  • the Indian people to take cold baths if they ever felt the urge to break their
  • own celibacy buds Gandhi wanted to test his own commanders to chastity which he
  • did by sharing his bread with naked girls often there was several at a time
  • mostly teenagers up to 60 years his junior and even his own grannies surely
  • there are better ways to prove your adorable will number one Winston
  • Churchill Winston Churchill is freed Willy hailed as a British hero for
  • having stayed the country to victory in the Second World War the Prime Minister
  • is remembered for his rousing speeches and sharp wit but overseas his legacy
  • isn't quite so spotless in fact he's pretty much personally
  • responsible for the deaths of around 3 million people in 1943 the Bengal region
  • of British India faced one of the most devastating famines in history primarily
  • due to British occupation but instead of taking responsibility
  • Churchill intentionally diverted food supplies away from India to supply the
  • British forces serving across Europe but not only was there no shortage of
  • food in this period Churchill had already rejected American Canadian
  • office of food supplies for the troops Churchill's reasoning was his disdain
