A parent who posted a Craigslist New Orleans ad is looking for “cool black kids” to befriend the poster’s bullied son, reports Jezebel.


According to the parent, his or her son is experiencing intense bullying, and the parent muses that perhaps if “cool black kids” were to hang out with that son, the bullying would stop. The ad asks that potential friends meet up with the bullied boy at the 7-Eleven or Stop and Shop.

Payment for the cool black kids is $15 an hour, plus other expenses such as movies and pizza.


It’s possible that this post is an attempt at satire. The worst-case scenario is that the person placing the ad is completely serious.
