Ghetto bascically means poor. Me being an african american, and having lived in some rough hood areas, i can deffinately say im glad my parents worked hard to get where they are today. There are many areas less than a mile away worss than anywhere i've lived. Chicago is among the worst. Many murders on those streets. A lot of things associated with the hood are too mature for this forum [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] .
