Cora Daniels has written a fascinating book on something that many of us have felt at the corners of our consciousness or discussed among friends but have not labeled so succinctly – the ‘Gehetto-ization’ of our society and it’s negative impact on our culture.
Finding it’s way into our culture through the mass media and spear-headed by Gansta rap, it has propelled people to mass fame and fortune, payed for old rich white guy’s mansions in Malibu, and corroded the moral compass of a generation.
To quote her website, “These days, ghetto no longer refers to where you live, but to how you live. It is a mindset. And a mindset is not limited to a class or a race.”
Finding a way to reverse this trend is one of the great moral imperatives of our time and I hope more people open their eyes to what is happening.
I hope Oprah picks up on this book, it is that poignant.
