The term "ghetto" is now commonly used to refer to any poverty-stricken urban area. In the U.S, "Rural ghetto" is used to describe mobile home parks, farm labor housing tracts, and Indian reservations. Urban neighborhoods where Mexican immigrants settled in the late 20th century (called barrios) are said to be comparable to ghettos, because most immigrants are clustered in culturally isolated enclaves.

Ghettos are formed in three ways:[1]

As ports of entry for racial minorities, and especially immigrant racial minorities.
When the majority uses compulsion (typically violence, hostility, or legal barriers) to force minorities into particular areas.
When the majority is willing and able to pay more than the minority to live with its own kind.
"Ghetto" is also used figuratively to indicate geographic areas with a concentration of any type of person (e.g. gay ghetto, student ghetto).



Haha my american history teacher brought that up last year and I was about to post the literal definition but I see I've no need for that =P

I hate when people claim to be "real niggas".

They're basically sayin that they wouldn't hesitate to fuck somebody up.

It's all retarded.

I think so cuz originally gangs were meant to be a sense of protection and unity (spin-off of black panthers I believe?) theres no need for that as much nowadays but the gangs were left hanging. so now a gang (in my dad's words) is: " a group of people w/ nothing better to do."

C-K 4 life!! Just playin. Ghetto can be anything from getting chrome rims to put on your Focus/Civic just because "it was cheap". Ghetto can be using a fucking rental car and pretending it's yours. Ghetto can be buying those fake ass spinners from Wal*Mart and putting them on. These days, the word "ghetto" describes anything that wasnt done right or "Legit". That's why it turns out looking goofy and stupid. Man, drug dealers is overrated. I seen kids slanging weed back in high school. Shit was stupid.
