now that we have our full rights to education so we can get the same degrees and a better job that may help us to leave peacefully. Im black.& i see majority of ghetto people are portrayed in america, on tv,on radios,in jamaica, we run the streets lol not a good thing. We are always degraded and the ghetto is always or representative of the black race. But why choose to act ghetto when we can just stop? Stop the ghetto talk,music which embrace violence,badman,fornication,ch eating,ins… word,weed,money money sex sex! Just why cant we stop? Do we like this attention

It isn't really that they choose to act this way. It's just how they were raised and how deeply embedded the "ghettoness" is in their culture everywhere

The ghetto mentality that leads to the glorification of "thug life" is deeply ingrain in the genetic memory of blacks. It is what blacks have always gravitated toward. Their propensity for committing crime and the easy money that goes with it has always seduced blacks away from leading normal lives as law abiding, productive citizens. Blacks will always be their own worst enemy. Just reading some of the posts on this forum has provided ample proof of that.

NO, its just that non-ghetto people don't want to be around loud, annoying, obnoxious, and violent group of people. Notice I said group, for the reason that black people aren't necessarily the only ones. I personally just don't like being around any kind of ghetto-ness, be it black, white, latino, or whatever. Like the previous comment said about people being raised a certain way, it is true. However, when you fail to realize your behavior in a world that certain behavior isn't appropriate for anyone, especially yourself, then the blame only falls on one person: yourself.

People can act any way they want to. If you don't like it don't go around those people. What I want to know is why do you think the way you act is the right way to act, and anyone that doesn't act like you is wrong?

The Holy Bible clearly states that "God's people shall perish because of a lack of knowledge". And also the Holy Bible also says "Do not be conformed to the ways of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...Black people are a beautiful of group people. There are so many AA's who act ghetto because of conformity, not because of Genetics. When most people are willing to conform to a negative way of life, it not only affects the individual, but the group as a whole. People become scared to do what's right because they are affraid to be considered outcasts or be teased or bullied in some way. The sad part is that the media has played the biggest role in creating the image of "thug life". They created films and movies and pop stars and gangster rappers, pimps and hoes, drug dealers, cop hating, cop killers. They created these images in a such a subtle way that would appeal to the eye and mind of oppressed Black people.

"Ghetto" people are misguided by the media and adopt to that way of life because most of them have no knowledge of their culture besides being a stolen people from Africa and being made slaves. If they had more knowledge about themselves and their culture before slavery and then they would quickly drop the "ghetto" mentality and start living lives of freedom and love...God bless you all! Put away ignorance and conformity! Learn to love and help each other!-Note to the world
