Understand the time period of the events. Yes, Ford hated Jews, published a weekly newspaper, "The Dearborn Independent" in which he frequently condemned the Jewish people saying all the world's problems were instigated by the Jews. He was friendly with Hitler -they awarded Henry the Iron Cross, but that was before he went kattiwhompus with delusions of grandeur. Hitler admired Henry Ford because of his beliefs on the Jews. Yes, it is also true Henry had a bastard child, John Dahlinger, and that he treated his only son, Edsel, poorly. All those are facts documented in most books on Ford. He was only human. I'm sure one could find negative things on everyone if they dug deep enough. One only needs too look at the current President and all the dirt the left is trying to toss out there. Yes, it is true Henry could not read a blueprint, but then Leo Fender couldn't play a lick on guitar, J. Edgar Hoover liked to dress in women's clothes, and Thomas Edison was not educated enough to realize that Nicolai Tesla was right with his AC current being better and safer over Edison's DC current practice.
