Sckraight From The Ghetto

You Know You're Ghetto If . . .

Bertice Berry and Joan Coker

St. Martin's Griffin

Is the only art you own on your fingernails? Do you consider kool-aid one of the five food groups?

You know you're ghetto if:
-Turning up the heat means turning on another burner on the stove
-You think of paneling as a home improvement
-You use a pair of pliers to change the channel on your TV
-You run to get pots as soon as it rains
-Your glasses and silverware come from a gas station
-Your weave is longer than your torso
-You have more than ten uses for Vaseline-and one of them is shoe polish

Ghetto is not where you live. Ghetto is not about income or social status. Ghetto is a state of mind.
