A word commonly used by a white person who believes that they are, or want to be, black. Is pronounced with a hard "G", such as in "great", followed by the suffix "hetto", spoken as if it is separate from the G. A person who describes themself as G-hetto can often be found:
*thinking that they can rap
*acting black
*being generally abnormal
*trying to be cool while wearing a turtleneck.

Usually a G-hetto person is not very popular and is shunned as a social outcast. A G-hetto person may also call themselves "G". Interchangeable with "white"
"He is so G-hetto, thinking he's cool."
