These people's legacies are celebrated and they're often thought of heroes. It's a shame that they couldn't live up to their own reputations.

Mahatma Gandhi: In his autobiography Gandhi admits to beating his wife while they were in South Africa. Speaking of which, he was also openly racist against South Africans. He said, "[South African black people] are as a rule uncivilized–the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live almost like animals . . . The reader can easily imagine the plight of the poor Indian thrown into such company!"

Thomas Jefferson had a secret family. He decried interracial relationships but was having one of his own the whole time with his slave, Sally Hemmings, with whom he had six children. He never formally acknowledged their existence and carried on as normal with his white family.

Woodrow Wilson was a KKK Sympathizer who “regretted the outcome of the civil war” and consequently set up segregated offices in the White House. African Americans were not able to rise to high-level positions and Wilson even screened a Ku Klux Klan propaganda film at the White House.

Thomas Edison: The World’s Most Famous Thief. A staggering amount of his work was stolen from other inventors. Edison once offered Tesla $50,000 (more than $1,000,000 in today’s money) if Tesla could improve one of Edison's inefficient devices, which Tesla was able to do extremely well. Edison then refused to pay up for Tesla's hard work (which would surely save Edison more than $50,000). Edison instead said, “Tesla, you don’t understand our American humor.”

Many of Mother Teresa's needy causes that she raised money for never saw a penny. A religious fanatic, Mother Teresa was more focused on opening new convents in her name, which in retrospect sounds like some sort of religious Ponzi scheme. 7% of the donations she received went to the actual causes for which they were donated.

Steve Jobs stole ideas for both software and hardware, including the iconic iPod. Jobs also worked at Atari, where he lied to his partner, Steve Wozniak, about how much bonus money they were receiving for creating a scaled-down version Pong. Even with all that cash, Jobs wanted more money for himself.

Steve Jobs and his wife hired Walter Isaacson to write his official biography. His wife ok'd the biography for publication after Jobs died. Isaacson, at the end of the bio, summed up Jobs in 4 words, "He was an ass"!

Gandhi was not racist. He just was stating facts about Negroes. And what is wrong with sympathizing with Ku Klux Klan? This site needs at least be tolerant to people and their factual views.

I never thought Mother Teresa was really a bad person, until someone handed me a book about her, written by Christopher Hitchens, who actually made a deep research on her life and found out she was a fanatic religious and a very cruel woman.

This book was presented to me short after the vatican made the announcement of her becoming a saint, and I started getting mad about all the negative comments about her. Then I read the book and trust me, it is disturbing what they say about her. Is it true? It's up to you whether to believe it or not.

Look for the interview to Hitchens on youtube and see for yourself.

Woorow Wilson was an all-round asshole. During WWI he instituted laws that were more like those of Nazi Germany. For example people could be prosecuted for telling rude jokes.
