Can we stop calling where poor people live slums and ghettoes?

Its fucking dehumanizing. “Poor communities” seems to work just fine as a descriptor.

Exactly and stop using “ghetto” as an adjective. 

Especially white people.

Especially people who don’t know what it means.

Especially people who have no knowledge of the historical context of the word and attribute it to blackness. 

Stop it.
