    In my area I've noticed quite a few unwed mothers are MAs (girls I went to school with). They get to go to those 9 month programs for free because of their "situation". Good for them if they do take the opportunity.. although programs like that strike a nerve with me and makes it seem like they are being rewarded.. but that's just my opinion. Anyways that explains the make up, tattoos, piercings, and attitudes for me.. as these are usually girls in their late teens to mid twenties who don't have a clue about being professional! Again, I know this isn't all MAs but def. have seen this issue in my area.

    That's a shame, our MAs our outstanding. Your administrative leadership needs to set the standard for professionalism. I agree, the behavior you describe is indeed appalling. However, I really must object to your use of the term "ghetto" in that context. I am sure you did not intend racist connotations, but just so you are aware, it is really pejorative and unacceptable language among polite company.

    @ BlueDevil,DNP,


    The use of the word "ghetto" is not racist at all. Ghetto is a culture not a color.

    It is clear from your post that you are the one who is unaware of how telling your comments are regarding race and what your pejorative thoughts are about African-Americans. A Caucasian or Hispanic or Asian could never be described in those terms, right????

    I know. My neighbor says our apartment complex is becoming all ghetto. He meant it as a eference to what has been going on. Trash in the hallways and loud music. It's not like that now since the one family has moved out but I know what you mean.

    Given the origin of the word "Ghetto" comes from the well known Venetian Ghetto, where Jews permitted to live, I would say that a number of people are mistaken in their use of the word. Also, reference the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in WWII, where Jews rose up against being transported to the death camps.

    As such, Ghetto encompasses much more than one culture or group. And is a greatly misused term.
