  • I would. If someone turned it around and said "you sound like a counrty ass redneck" I would feel the same way...Of course who said it and how they said it means more than what they say KWIM...

  • Yes. I find that statement racist and offensive no matter if it was said by a person who was white, black, or other.

    If they had said "You sound like your from the ghetto." The point would have been made. There was no need to use the word "ass" nor to specify a race. You can make a point with out being rude or offensive.

  • I agree with anon :53, you can be and act ghetto and race has nothing to do with it. I know some pretty ghetto people and none of them are black. To me, ghetto is not a race, but the way a person acts, without class.

  • anon 3:54 said it all......to be ghetto isnt inclusive with race, so why say it? its being totally classless. i hate when people purposely speak in an unintelligable way..like i dont understand some of the slang being thrown around...i consider a lot of it ghetto since they tend to want to group themselves with lowclass and uncouth behavior. and i dont know one black person that acts that way....so hell yes i would. i cant act purple...so why say i act black ya know lol i cant impersonate a color!
