Someday, I will talk some friends to cosplay this with me. * v * Chrriiis, be my Traviiis!!
Recently I was in the shopping mall and I happened to hear a conversation between some people discussing their dislike for this black girl’s hairstyle who had just previously walked by. One of them called the girl’s hairstyle “ghetto”, then followed up by saying “I hate when black girls put all them colors in their hair”. It led me to ask this question, what is ghetto really? Because I have seen similar hairstyles with Caucasian women never labeled as ghetto. The word “ghetto” has a negative stigma attached to it and it seems like ghetto has become synonymous for “Black People”.
What determines whether something is Ghetto or not? Why do some people consider one ghetto and not the other? Is being crafty with the supplies available to me ghetto? Is being creative while black unacceptable? Does the price of something determine whether you should consider it ghetto or not? Or maybe I’m wrong…. Please do share your thoughts….
You’re exactly right. Just like when Black people improvise, it’s ghetto, but let a middle-to-upper class white person do it, it’s a lifehack, or being thrifty, or economical, or thinking out of the box, or brilliant, or whatever.
I think the ‘ghetto’ claim may be that it probably didn’t look good on said person. In the exammple pic, the two middle ones look great while the first two look pretty ‘ghetto’ to me. I think nowadays the term “ghetto” in terms of style means to be cheap since those in the ghetto are poor fucks who work with makeshift materials to try to look good. This can work if done right, but 8 out of 10 times it tends to look stupid.
Back to people of the original story, who’s to say that maybe they just don’t like all those colors on a dark skinned person? Maybe they think it looks odd and think they look better with natural color? Certain colors don’t work with all skin types, and that goes for everyone, maybe they DID look ghetto. I think the original person jumped to conclusions a bit, it doesn’t sound like the group they saw said “…but it looks great on white people. “
As for the synomyms, yea, I can agree as in my experience I’ve learned the terms as:
cheap black person - ghetto
cheap white person - trailer park trash
