What defines ghetto to you?

Me, seeing a 2 year old out on the sidewalk with nothing but a diaper on, no shoes, and no parent in site.

  • hmm, my definition of ghetto would be a rundown apt building where crack dealers & gang bangers live. What you've described to me isn't ghetto, its child abuse & I'd be calling CPS.

  • " an impoverished, neglected, or otherwise disadvantaged residential area of a city"


    The definition of ghetto has nothing to do with with babies in diapers on sidewalks.

  • anyone with no class & no respect is ghetto to me. They can be rich, but they're attitude & character can certainly make them ghetto.

  • What you said, OP. Criminals, houses and children that aren't taken care of, men and women who walk around like they just crawled out of a dumpster, anyone being loud and using disgusting language thinking they are so badass because of that, and parents not bothering to watch their children, allowing them to run wild in the neighborhood, at stores, and doctor's offices.

  • I feel Ghetto is people that do no have respect for themselves and others.. They use loud voices and curse in public or around kids. I feel Ghetto is a term that is misused alot, bc it is usally directed to the black race.. but have seen ghetto people, and ghetto things, and ghetto whatever from all races..... So I think you have to make your def of GHETTO bc it comes in all kinds of ways!!!!!!!
