I am doing a re-blog for my FB fans because we all need to be human.
I’m a 5’2 white girl. What do I know about the “ghetto” you might be thinking. It’s cool. We’re all good. You can think that way. By definition, the “ghetto” is a part of the city in which members of a particular race or group live, usually in poor conditions. Weird fact, the word was first used around 1611. From Venetian dialect, where the Italians made Jews live on a ghèto island. Outcasts. Now, let’s get back to “modern-day.
Police tape. Dark shadows in alleys where you do NOT want to go. Trash littering the ground. People hanging out on the corners in broad daylight…shaking hands while passing things off. Run-down buildings and tenements that need to be condemned, but folks call that home. Crack houses. Shots fired. Police on the scene. Made the news for another murder, but folks around these parts just think it’s another day.
