i dont even know what ghetto means
Well there's several reasons. The parents, tv, movies, etc. People get influenced to easily.
Do you honestly feel kids enjoy growing up in poverty, uneducated, and underfed?<br />
Being ghetto, does not mean that..
I blame the way the education system is structured mostly, kids are more or less forced for at least 12 years to attend an bureaucratic institution where they study a variety-show amount of areas. They don't see the value in it (and in fact you might even conclude a lot of what they learn will never be used). They are no longer allowed to be punished by pain, and ****** results get standardized, a noble concept until the kids realised that meant they can get away with hell. Then they go home and watch shows which lambast authority and deep character building over cheap laughs and titillation. They come back to school and realise the way to impress their friends is to be the biggest and most outrageous class clown while getting by with the worst grades, an understandable value system given the variables. Ghetto thuggish East Side/West Side ******** culture is what has floated to the top of the idiocracy
It's cool if it's all you know. People who grow up in poverty face greater hardships than middle to upper class people and there is a sense of pride in that--surviving against the odds.
Because they only live once.
