Given how little of the actual story was included in this, consider changing your channel title to Drunk Revisionist History (per our sponsors)

Kind of a let down here. Colonel Sanders story doesn't just end there.. Why leave out all his charitable acts? Like him giving the entire KFC Canada branch to charity. Honestly you guys did Sanders dirty.

This video is sponsored by KFC, so they have to protect the image of their brand which means keeping the world aware of their whitewashed version of history. Can't have people canceling Sanders if they knew the truth about his real life follies.

Colonel Sanders was also a racist and a womanizer. All around, kind of a shitty guy... But I guess that was kind of the norm back then XD

What DH left out is that Coronel Sanders was old and almost destitute because no one wanted to buy into his recipe.

The funny thing is Colonel Sanders was a notorious drunk, so this depiction of him is probably pretty accurate.

Could be worse, there are idiots who claim he;s a slave owner. I really wonder about their source of history when comes to that.
ZenFox Hace 6 meses
Harland Sanders was born in 1890 in Henryville, IN, twenty-five years after the Civil War ended in 1865. He reportedly did serve in the US Army as a wagoner (teamster) from 1906-1907, but that’s not where his title came from. His title of “Colonel” was an honorary title reportedly bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1935 by Governor Ruby Luffoon. The honor of Kentucky Colonel is awarded in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to a community, state, or the nation. Over 85,000 people have been awarded this honor.

Can you post a source or reference for this? Reading about his years growing up, it seems he was dirt poor and certainly couldn't afford to hire any servants. I can only find a few claims about this supposed "Ms. Childress" woman, and the sources are less than reliable, like Pinterest and Instagram.

He was born in 1890, almost 30 years after slavery ended so while I agree he probably stole it it was not stolen from a slave (maybe a former slave though idk the backstory)
