When did ghetto become synonymous?
Why has black respectability politics consigned this notion?
The majority of white American society doesn’t realize that the same socio economic strata exist in both communities.
That ghetto is to trailer trash
as hillbilly is to Bama.
That both communities have a poverty class
working poor
working class
middle class
upper class and
rich people.
We don’t have multigenerational wealthy families,
but we helped build them all.
