Really, kid?

Posted: April 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

According to the Urban Dictionary:

Ghetto:
1. (n.) an impoverished, neglected or otherwise disadvantaged residential area of a city, usually troubled by a disproportionately large amount of crime
2. (adj.) urban; or or relating to inner city life
3. (adj.) poor; of or relating to the poor life

Is there anything more patently ridiculous than an obviously well to do white kid talking ghetto?

Really kid? You’ve never been close to a ghetto in your life, you probably don’t even know where the poorer parts of Montreal are, all isolated in your rich suburb and snooty private school. Seriously, I recognized you from the other day in your grey uniform. So ghetto?

Not so much.

Get over yourself.

    We seem to be both on linguistic themes today. Go figure. Of course, in similar context we have Canucks and northerners using y’all. I think eventually expressions (via the media) will become universal. Not necessarily a good thing.

    I completely agree. I’m happy to say that though I unfortunately reside in the American south, I know of no-one who says “y’all.” My mother had a predilection for speaking in complete sentences, a habit I heartily endorse.
