    I once asked my friend if he would like to try Ace Attorney and he replied:
    "I don't play anime."
    i wanted to cry

    I wonder what your cousin's grandma's butcher's niece's boyfriend actually thinks "ghetto" means...

    Not really. That's like telling someone not to say Rich because they don't know what it's like to be rich. It's stupid. lol

    Eh, you kind of have to understand the background behind the pre-WWII Jewish ghettos and how/why the word was adapted to describe Black-majority poverty regions. I guess it also kind of depends on what ethnicity she is

    Notwithstanding the origins of the term (middle ages), in the last centuries the Jewish ghettos were not the only ghettos. Specially considering that by current definitions "A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, typically as a result of social, legal, or economic pressure."
    I can think of many groups that definition would apply to.

    White people lived in poverty back then to so I don't understand your "flawless" logic here. Like we get it, white people did some fucked up shit but I shouldn't have fingers pointed at me and limited vocabulary so I don't hurt anyone's feelings. People need to get over it.

    Erm, I thought this was an exchange between the girl and someone else... why is this suddenly about you?

    I personally just avoid saying things if they clearly offend someone, unless it's a misunderstanding on their part. The way I see it, if it means enough to them that they ask you to stop doing it, it's just better to be polite about it

    I wasn't making it about me. I was using myself as an example. lol. Nothing is offensive about saying ghetto as long as you don't use it as a offensive comment. Basically my point here.

    In what context was it being used that it wouldn't be taken offensively?

    Not sure, but her pork stew tastes great.
    Actually, never tried pork so tender. Even the fingers taste good.

    I thought that Pokémon has prettymuch as much girls watching it as boys watching it :unsure:
    I always saw it as the one exception in games and animes in that regards. Well as for gaming I mean quality games and not really bad games. You never stop learning.
