• My understanding about the word “ghetto” is that it was first used to describe the situation of Jews who were forcibly confined to certain areas of the city. Originates in the 19th Century. Some etymologists believe the word has Yiddish origins.

    Blacks in America are not forcibly confined to live anywhere — they can live wherever they want. The practice of “red-lining” by property agents was outlawed many years ago. It’s self-imposed ghettoization as far I can see — another class of false victims.

    • Blacks are guilty of systemic generational cultural appropriation.

  • These little punks just hate Elvis, that’s the problem here.
