ghetto From the Urban Dictionary When someone is to be described as "ghetto" - it is used to describe that persons STATE OF MIND. "Ghetto" can be both a noun and an adjective. So, in this case, it is used as an adjective where white and Asian people can be just as "ghetto" as black people. Normally, this results from the poor living and upbringing conditions. "Ghetto" is a derogatory term used towards individuals who lack the standards of manners and ethics.

"Ghetto" is NOT black or being black. "Ghetto" is how an individual looks at the world and acts accordingly to the "ghetto" belief. "Ghetto" is how one presents themselves in how they dress, act, and speak that acquires itself from the poor conditionings of a "ghetto" (ref. ghetto-.noun) up-bringing.

Etymology

Dictionaries list a number of possible origins for the originally Italian term, including "gheto" or "ghet", which means slag or waste in Venetian, and was used in this sense in a reference to a foundry where slag was stored located on the same island as the area of Jewish confinement (the Venetian Ghetto), and borghetto, diminutive of borgo 'borough'.

History

The development of ghettos in America is closely associated with different waves of immigration and internal urban migration. The Irish and German immigrants of the mid-19th century were the first ethnic groups to form ethnic enclaves in America's cities. This was followed by large numbers of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe, including many Italians and Poles between 1880 and 1920. These later European immigrants actually were more segregated than blacks in the early twentieth century. Most of these remained in their established immigrant communities, but by the second or third generation, many families were able to relocate to better housing in the suburbs after World War II.

These ethnic ghetto areas included the Lower East Side in Manhattan, New York, which later became notable as predominantly Jewish, and East Harlem, which became home to a large Puerto Rican community in the 1950s. Little Italys across the country were predominantly Italian ghettos. Many Polish immigrants moved to sections like Pilsen of Chicago and Polish Hill of Pittsburgh and Brighton Beach is the home of mostly Russian and Ukrainian immigrants.

I'll have to dig deeper, but the word DID come from Europe having nothing to do with blacks.

Most liberals are idiots, the rest are complete morons.

So, by your definition, a forum topic with taking the Jew ouuta the ghetto should not be deleted?

And, contrary to the belief of many on the right, most black ppl are NOT from the ghetto.

There are middle classes in all colors and nationalities. As there are "ghettos" of a different names, for others... Like trailers.... Oh, and there are white ppl and Jews in "the ghetto".

Talk about you guys creating a class and social competition.....

I grew up in NYC, ghetto's are often referred to as areas that are inhabited by people who rely on government subsidies (rent, wic, section 8 etc...) aka projects.

It is filled with various immigrants, Chinese, Russian, Americans etc...it is also inhabited by blacks.

Many of these areas were/are crime ridden, and more often than not, those that I've met tend to behave in ways that can be described as lacking in manners, regardless of their skin color.

It's quite disturbing that some people assume that only blacks live in ghettos, and that only blacks behave like ghetto *dwellers.*

Upon further research, the term originated to describe areas where JEWS lived.

Knowledge is such a wonderful thang.

NY Ghettos were primarily Irish, and German in the 19th century. Lower income areas in Ireland are also referred to as Ghettos.
