A ghetto person is someone who doesn't have any education and culture, and that's why they don't even know how to speak good english and they dont know how to dress well because they dont even have enough money, also that's why they make up these words like "nigga" and "yo" and stuff like that, it's mostly related with african-american people, most of them are poor but they like to show something like a fake gold chain and shirts with money logos, but it's because they have never get money
You all ghetto people should go to latin america, europe and even africa, Im sure you'll find that most of the people even if they are poor they are well educated, the money doesnt matter
they cant even say a sentence without either having a grammatical error or a bad word in it
