This is an {URBAN} dictionary, so I reject that others try to force literal, mainstream definitions of slang on the words defined here. With that said, ghetto is not just a place where Jews were segregated in the past, it is also a way of thinking and behavior evolved from living in a physical ghetto. BECAUSE there are so many listings with ghetto linked to them, it is a FACT that people associate ghetto with not just a blighted area, but also a condition, an association with people, objects, and behavior not considered 'acceptable,' or 'proper' by mainstream society.
