just a question, why is the ghetto so bad? I mean everyone there is human. i never understood why people crave to live in the High class neighborhood.. why can't the low class consider themselves high class (you know, be contented where they live)? Maybe the neighbor is just bad because people made them feel that way.
The ghetto is bad not because of the people who live there, but because of the conditon of so many of the properties that slumlords don't repair and keep in good living condition. You are correct that the people who live in these areas are people just like everyone else, but society treats them like second class citizens.
