We interrupt this program for just a moment because we all need to get one thing clear. The title of this page should address each post and the blog as a whole. Because at this point, the uninformed, not-very-bright comments are getting out of hand. It’s painfully clear people don’t read most of the posts here, especially the recent ones, to get the real vibe of this place.
Don’t let the smooth taste fool you. There’s more beneath the surface of the subject matter and especially the photos.
This blog’s general mission is unlike most commentary you’ll hear on the whole ghetto thang. If you look up the word “ghetto,” it talks about a place a group of people are somehow restricted to. Generally, people are not physically restricted to any one place these days so the only real ghetto is a mentality. It’s that ghetto of the mind that has a people feeling as if there’s this certain way to live and present oneself. And that’s not to say what’s correct or incorrect. All people on this planet, even those under totalitarian rule, have freedom to do and think whatever the hell they want, no matter how clueless or off it might look, but some if not most people simply don’t understand that, including some of these idiot commentators.
Ghetto people are not a RACE!
With few exceptions, Stuff Ghetto People Like is not a commentary on race. Matter of fact, most of the material is written in a manner that does its damnedest to not make it about race, or class, or how much money someone makes, any of that.
Joke’s on you if you think this blog is about making fun of, or attaching ghetto behavior specifically to, Black people, or anyone in a racial way for that matter. Joke is also on you if you make a racist comment here, and it’s quite likely we’ll open up your E-mail publicly to everyone at will for fun (retroactively at that), depending on if this author is in a good enough mood. Stuff Ghetto People Like does not exist to give a fix to racists. This ain’t Stormfront.org and this ain’t YouTube!
We, however, are here to point out things one notices in the hood that involve people of all races that come from the hood, and hopefully make some laughs or make some say “damn, you ain’t lyin’, that really DOES go down!” I take most of the pictures myself and as such, I write what I see. Sometimes a post might be a scathing criticism. That’s the beauty of having a forum to express ideas, it can go any direction it needs to.
The hood isn’t just a Black place, and not all Black neighborhoods (or Latino neighborhoods, for that matter) are the hood. In this time period, that’s pretty simple math that should be kind of understood by you PC-*ss geniuses, don’t you think?
There are people from the hood that go on to do great things, as well as hoods that are quite rewarding places to live. Not all hoods are the inner city (“core area” to the Canadians reading, since not all hoods are in the U.S.), some are suburbs, some are absolutely the sticks. Diverse regions with, again, diverse peoples. You also won’t see white people who happen to be hood or talk like they listen to way too much rap called “wiggers” here, for example. Do the knowledge to each post here and you’ll figure out what we’re implying and NOT implying.
A lot of the stupid (and anonymous) comments people post (usually under the same damn old *ss subjects) don’t bother this author…they’re just clearly indicative that people don’t read, let alone get, this site. It’s further indicative that these folks think ghetto people must mean Black people. To ignore the actual topic and constantly troll about how racist the blog supposedly is shows the racist in them if you ask me…and how small minded, unsophisticated, and gutless many people really are.
I could easily delete or reply to every single one of these comments criticizing the material individually, but that would be petty, and it would take away focus from what’s really being said here. So instead of that, the bottom line is this: Those of you who look to spin SGPL into being a race blog of some sort, it’s just not gonna happen, period. Get over yourselves and take your race issues elsewhere so we can have some fun.
Just understand that this author is confidently smarter than you, funnier and more sophisticated than you, been around the block more than you, has considered more angles than you, and there’s a method to the madness here that you likely aren’t built to get. In the immortal words of Keith Murray, it bees like that sometimes.
