  1. How come Jesus is always depicted as a bearded, thirty- something white guy of northern European extraction. Malcom X’s portrait of him was much closer to reality: a curly haired, lightly bearded, dark- skinned guy of middle east extraction.

  2. Kennedy stopped world war III? Dammit, I have traveled through time again?? and this time everything is messed up, you see in my time, world war three never happened. I should’ve never bought a Delorean.

  3. These are shockers! I couldn’t even guess at Princess Diana or JFK without checking the captions.
    Jacki Kennedy looks like Michael Jackson in a dress, and former president Bush looks more like John Wayne!

  4. Hitler was NOT a representative of the Aryan race as he was short and had brown hair – a far cry from the tall, blonde, Nordic people that were the ideal Aryans.

    And there were a lot of Americans who were strongly opposed to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Only the more outspoken Americans who supported Bush ever seem to be heard. Not everyone in America are mindless idiots who favor militarized foreign policy.
