Ghetto

Related to the genocide in New Orleans, a tale of third world living in the USA:

"Metaphors of caste like these are everywhere in the United States. Sadly, although dirt and water flow downhill, money and services do not."

"So there is, in fact, no exit for these children. East St. Louis will likely be left just as it is for a good many years to come: a scar of sorts, an ugly metaphor of filth and overspill and chemical effusions, a place for blacks to live and die within, a place for other people to avoid when they are heading for St. Louis."
