Ghetto Hikes: A Hoax? (UPDATE)

ghettohikes.jpg
UPDATE: Looks like Ghetto Hikes is a parody account -- and an unfunny one at that. According to a just-released tweet, Men's Humor and Ghetto Hikes were registered by the same person. Runnin' Scared will try and figure out the deal.

Meet Mr. Cody, author of Ghetto Hikes, a tumblr/Twitter meme in the making.

"I HAVE A FULL TIME JOB LEADING URBAN KIDS (OF ALL RACES) ON NATURE HIKES. I SIMPLY WRITE DOWN SHIT THEY SAY," writes Mr. Cody -- who gives no other identifying info.

Some of the kids' observations?

And let's not forget:

Judging from the posts, it doesn't seem like the kids have a traditional reverence of nature a la Walden -- but they're sure-as-shit taken aback by the great outdoors, which is a step in the right direction.

Ghetto Hikes looks like it's only been around since January, but already has almost 430,000 followers. Runnin' Scared reached out to Mr. Cody about his project. We'll update if we hear back.

This is racist because it's evil and wrong to make fun of any ethnicity.  Except for white people, then it's okay.  The only way any white person can talk about race is from the perspective of apologizing and grovelling.  The media will vulture swarm a half white man shooting a black thug in self defense and try to portray it as a racially motivated killing FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS.  Meanwhile, "beat whitey night" gets ignored by the media.

Why is it racist? None of the comments ever say what race the children in question are. Are you assuming they black? Are you assuming the adult is white? Whose the racist now?

I do this for a living.  As someone who has heard multiple students refer to lightning bugs as paparazzi bitches, I do not doubt for a second that these are real.

Everyone is a little racist for starters. On top of that, some of the funniest most groundbreaking "innocent" things had strong racist undertones. Tom & Jerry, Charlie Brown, The Flintstones. Not all racism is against blacks mind you. Just enjoy a good laugh once in a while and if you don't find something funny then move on. No need to trash anyone or anything unless it crosses a major line. Like the fucked up joke thing on YouTube

@cjalbebl Way to set the rest of us back decades. Not all of us care about color or background, but people like you sure as hell make it hard for us to prove otherwise. Do the world a favor and get your klan brothers and move to an island we can nuke the shit out of.

 Shut the fuck up! Racism is funny, and usually justified. I'm guessing you're a liberal white woman and you think blacks are oppressed.
