How can a name be ghetto? When ghetto was not used to describe a name. but a place?
I don't understand why people say "I hate ghetto names" when ghetto was not a word for describing a time of name. What do you all think? ghetto (n.) A section of a city occupied by a minority group who live there especially because of social, economic, or legal pressure. ghetto (n.) An often walled quarter in a European city to which Jews were restricted beginning in the Middle Ages. ghetto (n.) Something that resembles the restriction or isolation of a city ghetto:“trapped in ethnic or pink-collar managerial job ghettoes” (Diane Weathers) Source(s): ask.com Geovani yes I am half black. And sorry everyone these definitions came up the quickest
