To be ghetto or not to be ghetto?
Posted 2/9/09 , edited 2/9/09
I was wondering is being ghetto WRONG?
Lol i have been called "white washed" many times and it seems to people a good thing....
but why is it when someone calls u ghetto it's bad?
I personally have a mom who tells me "if you hang out with those ghetto kids, you'll end up with a baby and a career at mickey D's"
This is confusing to me. What? i can't have black friends? Or i'll transform "ghetto"?
Tell me ur opinions

Edit: oops this was supposed to be in the general section.
Anyone know how i could get it there? ?

People misunderstand the word ghetto. If you're ghetto, that means you're from the hood or a low-income neighborhood. But now when people use the word ghetto, they associate it with a person who don't have common sense, or something that's messed up.

You can have black friends becuase not all black people act stupid (by what your mom means). She just wants you to hang out with a good crowd.

Ghetto is so wrong that it's right, but you know it's wrong for being rightfully wrong in the most wrongfully right kinda way.

I think you should know when it is appropriate to act that way. I act like that when im around friends or family. Not the foolish, crazy ghetto tho.

i agree with shamela. but i also think what your mom said is rude. you can hang out with who ever you want to hang out with and it doesnt matter what they do really, because in the end its your choice rather to or not to act and do the same things as everyone else.

im not saying you would do what everyone else does btw. lol im just saying it a choice. :]

technically a ghetto is the places that the jews were forced to live in when the nazis were trying to control and kill them during the holocaust. they lived in the poorest conditions without much money (which the nazis took) and little food. calling someone ghetto without knowing them well and being their friend is wrong. you shouldn't call someone ghetto unless you know that it's not an insult to them. your mom isn't being very respectful to whoever you hang out with. tell her that!

so do you like being called 'white trash', 'red necked' or 'trailer park'?"
Ghetto depending on the use of the word can be positive and negitive. I wouldn't fee comfortable saying to someone unless I knew how they would take it.
I used to live in a 'ghetto house'. Found it to be a funny term because in reality it really wasn't as bad as those "rich snobs" on the otherside of the city thought it was.
perception in and reality can differ quite a bit
