What constitutes as being ghetto? I live in a prominent suburb, (it was actually voted the number 1 suburb in America, so I have no punk credentials), and at my school the other day some blind (I just want to point out that he was COLOR BLIND and has a really hard time seeing anything, I have no idea why he would even try) kid tried to punch some "ghetto" kid in the face, he missed. The "ghetto" dude is two years older than most of the grade and sells drugs. Would that constitute as him being ghetto even though he lives in probably one of the safest places in America?

That's because I think he could still be ghetto regardless of where he lives.

So he's old and sells drugs so he's ghetto? I don't think that's how it works. Poverty, actually living in a ghetto, drugs, maybe add gang warfare in there, that'd be ghetto for me.

So ghetto for you just means being a low-life. How class-ist.

In Ganoosh's pictures you minds as well consider the first one as ghetto, at least that's what some kids in the suburb I live think. Please, no one wants to live in the ghetto, if you think people do you fell and bumped your head.

Meh, they think because we live next to a suburb on the outskirts of Chicago that actually has a ghetto thinks the term applies to them. Bitch please, no one drives around the "ghetto" in a brand new sedan mommy and daddy bought you. And no one in the ghetto buys a new phone every two months.

I believe minorities are a pre-requisite for being considered "ghetto."

I think it's more about the economic position of the people living there than race. It just so happens that in the US the poorer inner-city citizens tend to be minorities, or at least it's thought of that way.

Ghetto = poor black people. Can be other races, and it's more about being poor than being black, but 99% of the time when you hear, "That is so ghetto," people mean black.
That kid = white kid from the suburbs who's good for nothing and wishes he was a poor black person because he's dumber than shit.

Ghetto:


Basically people wearing over sized shirts, saggy pants, and talking like illiterate retards. They can be white, black, or hispanic.

Asians look incredibly less intimidating when acting ghetto though.

i voted the third option. If all you need to be ghetto is to live in the suburbs and sell drugs, therefore the cast of the show Weeds is ghetto. This is false.

"Ghetto" is a noun, not a verb. It's a place.

I assumed the kid in the OP was black because he sold drugs.

Using ghetto as an adjective is simply to describe behavior that is stereotypical of someone in the ghetto. It's as ignorant as labeling someone a redneck because they like 4x4s or guns. I have noticed that it's more often embraced by people that don't actually live in the ghetto, probably because the reality of living in the ghetto doesn't live up to the romanticized ideas people get from music and movies.

I've known many people that use the term "ghetto" to describe a behavior, usually one that involves doing something cheap, like using boxes as a coffee table or drinking boxed wine.

I am originally from a ghetto in southern california. It's obviously a terrible place. I thank god everynight I don't live there anymore. TS, you are a terrible person.

You're just being racist now. That's definitely not what ghetto means. And yes, there are Asian gangs and they would **** you up if you told them that.
