Recently I was in the shopping mall  and I happened to hear a conversation between some people discussing their dislike for this black girl’s hairstyle who had just previously walked by. One of them called the girl’s  hairstyle “ghetto”, then followed up by saying  “I hate when black girls put all them colors in their hair”. It led me to ask this question, what is ghetto really?  Because I have seen similar hairstyles with Caucasian women never labeled as ghetto. The word “ghetto” has a negative stigma attached to it and it seems like ghetto has become synonymous for “Black People”.What determines whether something is Ghetto or not? Why do some people consider one ghetto and not the other? Is being crafty with the supplies available to me ghetto?  Is being creative while black unacceptable? Does the price of something determine whether you should consider it ghetto or not? Or maybe I’m wrong…. Please do share your thoughts….@hated_logic

You’re exactly right. Just like when Black people improvise, it’s ghetto, but let a middle-to-upper class white person do it, it’s a lifehack, or being thrifty, or economical, or thinking out of the box, or brilliant, or whatever.

Jesse Williams + Aryn Drake-Lee 

I was a teacher when I met her, so she’s been with me through all different facets of my career. She’s stuck with me through thick and thick, and thick and thin. We know each other in and out.

BEAUTIFUL!

Love it!

A lot of young people today, think it’s been like this [for Black actors] for a long time. But this is really new, you know, to see as many Black people as you see on commercials„ and sitcoms, and all over the television, and in film. The Tyler Perry’s and the Spike Lee’s and the people who are coming up and becoming filmmakers, and becoming players, and doing their thing in the game and putting other African Americans to work, that’s the important picture to me. - Bill Nunn

Being in the will of God isn’t easy because God will pull you out of your comfort zone to use you. You have to deny yourself (comfort) & surrender to God’s will & way. Denying yourself isn’t easy but it can be achieved. If its comfortable it isn’t God. If its easy it isn’t God. The devil…
