Elli Ott i’ve never referred to anybody as ghetto.
it’s always been a strange foreign word.
when I hear it I think it must mean something like white trash, and even that I think is a bit much.
“sheltering yourself from the information as to not appear racist” also sounds odd to me.
that would seem to apply to me in this situation but I don’t think I’m trying to shelter myself from information nor trying to appear not racist.
I very well could be racist. how would I even know? but sheltering myself from information is not something I do.
i’ll reject statistics put out to prove a point that I find dubious.
could that be it?
Elli Ott where would that even be?
i’ve lived in near poorer neighborhoods and most people just want to live life as best they can, raise families etc.
but some of these neighborhoods get taken over by bad illegal businesses such as drugs or mafia and they start to rule over the families that live there.
