9. WINSTON CHURCHILL

Winston Churchill was racist. Sure, he was an excellent writer and there are countless amazing quotes that he said over time but he had a dark side. Check the following; it’s what he said:

“I do not admit… that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia… by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race… has come in and taken its place.” -Churchill to Palestine Royal Commission, 1937.

“I do not understand the squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favor of using poisonous gas against uncivilized tribes” – Writing as the President of the Air Council.
