Ghetto

" In my time growing up in Oakland, California (primarily East Oakland) and teaching art in low-performing inner-city schools throughout the Bay Area (Hunters Point/Bay View, San Francisco, East and West Oakland), I quickly realized that there is absolutely no way in comparing one ghetto to another.

Even traveling into other inner-city ghettos throughout neighboring cities, and state-wide as well (half the time accidentally driving into unknown turf), one thing that I noticed was that each ghetto has a life of its own; A kind of unique street culture, if I may, exists with the people who live in the area that is unfamiliar, and sometimes unknown, to outsiders. The way of life in each ghetto is unique compared to the next, even if the neighborhoods are only several blocks away. "
