No wonder they wanted to kill him.

What a douchebag!

At Lambarene, he built schools and hospitals and clinics etc.  In effect he wasted 40 years helping ungrateful life-forms.

Kindly explain how his observations might somehow be incorrect.

Maybe they didn't like what he said about them.  You know, because they weren't savages and could understand what he was saying.

The first homo sapiens came out of Africa.  You owe them fire, the wheel, beer... everything the "more enlightened" race invented came off the backs of the inventions that came before.

It is when the "more civilised" try to remove the culture of the "savage" and replace it with their own that things go wrong.

Do yourself a favour: download and watch "Africa Addio"  which covers the 1960's savagery in the Congo until handled by super-hero Mike Hoare's mercenaries.

It also mentions Kenyan born Obummer's Kikuyu barbaric Mau Mau ceremonies.

It also shows Arabs genocided on Zanzibar.

Thereafter, you will better appreciate the extent to which Albert Schweitzer's mild conclusion was correct.   Trust me, I have even more convincing footage.

No, I don't think that would be a favour to anyone.

I find it disturbing to recognise any true and useful things in what Harold posts. 

The sad part is that they're defiled by the rest of what he says.

It is hard to read the garbage you produce. 

This is what Jacopetti himself said about his film:

"The Africa of the great explorers, the huge land of hunting and adventure adored by entire generations of children, has disappeared forever. To that age-old Africa, swept away and destroyed by the tremendous speed of progress, we have said farewell. The devastation, the slaughter, the massacres which we assisted belong to a new Africa– one which if it emerges from its ruins to be more modern, more rational, more functional, more conscious- will be unrecognizable.
"On the other hand, the world is racing toward better times. The new America rose from the ashes of a few white man, all the redskins, and the bones of millions of buffalo. The new, carved up Africa will rise again upon the tombs of a few white men, millions of black men, and upon the immense graveyards that were once its game reserves. The endeavor is so modern and recent that there is no room to discuss it at the moral level. The purpose of this film is only to bid farewell to the old Africa that is dying and entrust to history the documentation of its agony".

As far as the MauMau are concerned, they are not  tribe with ceremoonies as you suggest.

They were a liberation movement fighting for their country's independance, fight for which Jomo Kenyatta, who in 1963 became Kenya's 1st Prime Minister, spent 7 years in a British jail.

Pity you did not watch much beyond the introduction to the documentary.

Once again you misunderstood. I did not suggest Mau Mau was a tribe.  It was a terrorist organization using witchcraft for initiation ceremonies and intimidation.

It was largely based within the Kikuyu trouble maker tribe.

I not only saw the picture but know their authors, it was an independence movement and the Kikuyu are anything but troublemakers, they just happened to be the largest of the tribes.

you are just a very presumptous SOB.

Alas it sounds as if you should have progressed further along the learning curve.

I can recommend plenty authors for your benefit.

For the record, Mau Mau initiation ceremonies include a casserole of blood, urine, eyes, animal guts etc.  I will spare you the gory details.

We are used to being insulted and disbelieved and given the unkindest cut by those whose turn will come. 

A week is a long time in politics. When the pendulum swings, it will not swing alone.

Independence movement ? They have no conception of the word "independence".  They mill around civilized houses so the civilized ones can fill their bags with "independence" as promised by their agitators.  Independence to them, does NOT mean standing on your own two feet.  It means holding out the begging bowl while breeding like rabbits.  They have never known a golden age, except under benevolent colonialism.

What gratitude was shown for colonialists ending the Arab slave trail to the Kenyan coast ?

The Kikuyu, Masai, Somalis, Samburu or exotic Nilotics do NOT share common national values nor cultures, customs nor ethnic identity any more than so-called "Yugoslavians" who retain identities as Croats, Serbs, Bosnians, Slovenes, Macedonians etc.
