Recently I was in the shopping mall and I happened to hear a conversation between some people discussing their dislike for this black girl’s hairstyle who had just previously walked by. One of them called the girl’s hairstyle “ghetto”, then followed up by saying “I hate when black girls put all them colors in their hair”. It led me to ask this question, what is ghetto really? Because I have seen similar hairstyles with Caucasian women never labeled as ghetto. The word “ghetto” has a negative stigma attached to it and it seems like ghetto has become synonymous for “Black People”.
What determines whether something is Ghetto or not? Why do some people consider one ghetto and not the other? Is being crafty with the supplies available to me ghetto? Is being creative while black unacceptable? Does the price of something determine whether you should consider it ghetto or not? Or maybe I’m wrong…. Please do share your thoughts….
You’re exactly right. Just like when Black people improvise, it’s ghetto, but let a middle-to-upper class white person do it, it’s a lifehack, or being thrifty, or economical, or thinking out of the box, or brilliant, or whatever.

But seriously though. If you’re in that much of a hurry, just leave 10 minutes earlier.

never ask white people what their ethnicity is unless you wanna hear a list of every european country and meaningless fractions
What if we happen to have Mediterranean or Native American ancestry that we can still legit claim?
Or, you know, Pacific Islander and Native American. But those mixed race can-pass-as-white people, eh? All just European mutts. Because it’s totally not possible to be white unless your entire ethnic history is 100% European.
And even that’s impossible thanks to those whose ancestors knocked boots with Neanderthals. Not to mention the various travelers and merchants from the Near, Middle and even Far East. Plus those merchants and travelers from Africa. Hell, there were tobacco leaves found with an Egyptian mummy last year.
