Civil, I see you're about as well versed in Jewish history as you are in Black history.<quoted text>
Yes, in that context, "ghetto" is absolutely racist. You see "Really," the term really has become synonymous with 'slum." I know what Mr. Stamos meant. You can kid yourself. Really you can.
And you can have your racist fun all day on this board, Only because there are no repercussions for objectionable and insensitive postings on an anonymous bulletin board. Try calling Marketbasket that to a black person who shops there, or better yet, works there.
So STFU. I was really only talking to Stamos.
PS-You must be thinking of the 'Warsaw Ghetto Uprising." Warsaw is in Poland dumbass.
Formerly, a street or quarter of a city set apart as a legally enforced residential area for Jews. Forced segregation of Jews spread throughout Europe in the 14th–15th centuries. Ghettos were customarily enclosed with walls and gates and kept locked at night and during Christian festivals. Since outward expansion was usually impossible, most ghettos grew upward; congestion, fire hazards, and unsanitary conditions often resulted. Ghettos were abolished in western Europe in the 19th century; those revived by the Nazi Party (see Warsaw Ghetto Uprising) were overcrowded holding places preliminary to extermination. More recently, the term ghetto has been applied to impoverished urban areas exclusively settled by a minority group or groups and perpetuated by economic and social pressures rather than legal and physical measures.
Now why don't you head on down to "Market" Basket and ask that cop there why he/she even needs to be assigned there?
