The opposite of de-ghettoize, refers to the vast influx of poor bad minorities into inner-city neighborhoods that were left to rot by rich white people; later the rich white people realized they missed their cities and began a process of de-ghettoization, which consisted mostly of "running the Richard C. Lee Memorial Highway through it."
