Chris Long special about climbing Kilimanjaro for clean water effort; re: can't fix stupid
So, I see this is on nfl network tonight and I give it a chance. The premise is: Chris Long and a couple ex players and some former green berets get together to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in an effort to raise money for "clean water" in Africa.

The goal is to drill 32 wells for all 32 nfl Tems.


So..the program starts, and they basically show Tanzanian tribes digging a hole about 10 ft. just randomly in the ground about 5 miles from their home camp, then putting muddy water in a 5 gal bucket and hauling it back. 9f course they have no wheelbarrow, etc... Just fricking hauling the shite in their heads. Guess cave man tech and a thing called the wheel hasn't made it there yet.

Once they get there... They literally drink the shite straight from the bucket and share the stuff with their farm animals... All from the same bucket.

Then they show another group that lives next to a damn river or watering hole.... They grab loads of algae covered pond water and then take it home.

Long asks one guy, "That green stuff, you don't throw it away, you just drink it like that?" the guys goes "yep"


I'm sorry, but if you're so fricking dumb that you don't know not to DRINK ALGAE COVERED WATER, then no amount of water sources is going to save your dumb ass.

I guess if they lived by the sea, they'd just drink that shit, too, and watch everybody die, and just keep doing it.

You can't tell me that these tribes can't boil it or rig up some simple filtration system that other cultures did for thousands of years. But I guess fire hasn't made it there either.... Guess they're a little behind on the times.

And it's not like these folks don't see others in the tribe dying of fricking dissentary, etc. All the time..

Hmmm... Let's either move our little camp to a clean river or... I'd don't know... Boil the water!

You Live In A Desert!

I'm sorry, I know long and the crew have good intentions, but sending a damn 18th century anatomy textbook and a map to them would basically help them more than digging them a well that they are just going let babies and animals drink out of, and sit and get contaminated all over again.

I feel sorry for these people, but, damn... You gonna be that damn dumb, I can't help you.

You just don’t get it do you. Us racist white people figured out long ago that if you drink pond scum, you get sick. Now, we have to travel the world to tell people this so they can continue to retain their native culture while we mock it in a soothing soft racist way. You see, we have to be racist to show other whites that we are not racist.

Chris Long and his buddies were drinking one night and one of them said "Bros, let's climb Kilimanjaro. . . and let's get other people to pay for it"

There's no desire to actually improve anything there.

They drink scummy water because they always have drank scummy water and nobody has any ambition or desire to actually improve anything.

Without any outside intervention Africa would look exactly like it did 1,000 years ago.

They are just content to be primitive.

A bridge built in Ethiopia centuries ago by Europeans. The Europeans left and the bridge slowly decayed. They now just cross it with ropes.

Nobody there thought to maintain it, or learn how it was built, or attempt to build another one.

do you have any idea how difficult it would be to transport water in a wheelbarrow?

I saw that segment. I’ve heard philanthropic pitches from a few similar organizations that made me scratch my head. Just like this water project, people trying to do good greatly underestimate their impact on the local ecosystem. That well is an enormous resource that will be controlled by a few.

Giving resources to Africa is completely pointless and actually harmful.

The only way to improve Africa is solely with education.

No money, no food, no medicine, no technology, give them nothing. Focus 100% of the efforts on education.

I see Chris Long is keeping his carbon footprint down.

And it's common sense, and nothing will change as the only thing, European/American white culture, keeps dumbing things down for them.

Even education wouldn't help or will take ages. Why there aren't any successful african descendant run societies. Individually they can gave success, but in group setting the tribalism just prevails.

Of course people will whine about it being "racist", but it's not. It's just common sense.

Of course it's all sensationalized for TV.

I spent about a year in one African country. They boiled water in the bush and the cities had filtered water. They had even mostly eradicated malaria in the capitol.

Long story short, don't believe everything you see on TV.

If we didnt interfere at all in Africa mother nature would have reverted it back to just wildlife. Take all aid, outside influence and help and in a decades time the population would be a tenth of what it is today.

I’m crying laughing right now..
This shite is hilarious.
And I’d be careful if I were you, by pointing out the perpetual problems that plague Africa you’ll be called a white supremacist. Even though neither you nor I caused it. Trust me, they will blame anyone.

Having been to Tanzania, that story reeks of BS.

Yes living conditions can be crude. Maasai live in igloo size huts made from cow dung. But even then there is no large contingent hauling a 5gal bucket of muddy water 5miles, much less doing it consistently without a cart or pack animal. As in most non-FirstWorld locales, tap water there is not potable. They boil it. They also drink a lot of tea (same effect)

OTOH, areas of Kilimanjaro look like a city dump.

Kilimanjaro Garbage

Kudos to Long and Co for walking to the top. It's quite a hike. The altitude makes it rough. Hopefully though, these "climbers for clean water" picked up their own garbage on the trek.
