Uban = ghetto? 2012-04-01 16:15:50 Reply

So I'm having an argument in school because an award my school won. My school won the Excellence in Urban Education Award. I have come to the conclusion that when people say urban that it's the same thing as inner city. Does anyone else feel the same as me or am I just jumping to conclusions?

How are you jumping to conclusions? I thought Urban and inner city were the same.

I guess urban means inner city. That does not mean ghetto. Is Times Square in Manhattan a ghetto place?

ur·ban/Ë^ÉTMrbÉTMn/
Adjective:
In, relating to, or characteristic of a city or town: "the urban population".
Denoting or relating to popular dance music of black origin: "a party that features the best in urban music".

That doesn't imply a ghetto. A ghetto is a slum with low quality of living.

I dont know what the hell people think these words mean anynore. Urban means city and ghetto means a poor neighbourhood or it used to mean an area for Jews to live like Indian reservations or something. But I assume it was ghettos because they were poor minorities living there.

Urban and ghetto aren't the same thing, ghettos are crappy urban areas.

I highly doubt a ghetto school would win any award.

My opinions are so useless, I don't even listen to them.
