How to use ghetto in a sentence?

  1. Jamela Dunbar:

    Money and power is the biggest rat race in our nation today. It is the root of every evil, to gain more control over the poor to keep them in castration. In these modern times, money and power rules. Starting from the top to the bottom, of the hierarchy. Both coming from old money and new money. The split between being born rich with a silver spoon in your mouth, or being born poor living in Ghetto. Or the unforeseen fortune of the poor moving from rags to riches. To eat from the same rich man's plate.”

  2. Ash Fulk:

  3. Eldridge Cleaver:

    I can put myself in their shoes because I was once in them, i don't justify it because I don't think you can justify it, but at the end of the day I understand how they can get to that point. They're young and vulnerable. It's the same way that a kid in the ghetto joins a gang.

  5. The Rev. Jesse Jackson:

    While a lot of focus is on policing, development is the answer, there are more jobs to be had in the ghetto than there are people.
