    Ghetto is a Yiddish word. The ghetto was the part of town that the jews were forced into after having their homes and buisneses taken by the Nazi's. The Ghetto had a wall around it.If a jew didn't make it back to the ghetto before curfew, they would be shot.
    The Ghetto is NOT some place people wanted to be. The Ghetto IS some place people are forced to be. The closest thing we have in the U.S. to a true Ghetto is an Indian Reservation, or the Japanese "Interment" camps of the 1940's, or a "Low-Income Housing-Project",or a "Share-Crop" plantation, or a Correctional-Facility.
    These are not the choicest places in which to live. To want to be "Ghetto" is as self-defeating as wanting to be "Prison" or "Concentration-Camp". For a free man to say "YO, I'm MAD concentration-camp, son!" not only sounds rediculous, but sounds a little insulting to those who are ACTUALLY interred or incarcerated for un-just reasons. If you ever find yourself actually "Ghetto", I hope that you are strong enough to be "Warsaw Ghetto" and rise-up. To take delight in the conditions your oppresssors have forced upon you is to insure that your babies will suffer the same indignities and attrocities you take pride in enduring. So until next time, keep it mad "slave", dunny.

    ..I lived in what is reffered to commonly as "ghetto" and the only thinkg I ever thought of was getting the fuck out.It is a place with alot of heart and soul, but also trife with circumstances harsh enough to make you cry. It will eat most of us alive.
    It is not something to glamorize.

    EXACTLY! I think the topic should've been closed after this comment, because this is the bottom line- Motherfuckers nowadays in their suburban neighborhoods put the label "ghetto" on anything just to make themselves feel less isolated from the nitty gritty of society. Fuck them, that kind of shit offends me when I see people barley living... ghetto does not = anything good!

    the word ghetto is very overused. most people associate ghetto with something they might not have seen before. like a car goin down the road with a bungee cord holding the trunk closed. people are like, das ghetto. or certain shit people do, other people think it's ghetto. overall, ghetto is used too often.
