7 Great Men in History (And Why You Should Hate Them)

Not safe for work-Language

Everyone knows Roosevelt couldn't walk, that is no reason to hate him. Edison was an ass, but he died poor too. Wilson was a racist, but probably did not use terms like hyphonated-Americans, because terms like African-American, or Italian-American were not yet being used. Jefferson did not formally acknowledge his black children, but they were openly treated better than his other slaves. Many were taught special trades and sent north to freedom. Plus, it was not uncommon for men to marry the sisters of dead wives or the wives of dead brothers. So that part doesn't really make what he did any worse.
These facts lead me to question the validity of the rest of this article.

Matilda on the left is a Great Dane. Augie in the center and Octavia on the right are Newfound lands.
