Our mayor cares about getting votes, but I can assure you that before he ran for politics he never gave 1 flying f-- about the residents of the ghetto. Everyone is selfish, including ghetto residents that are just looking for more handouts.

Why don't you watch a video of the rioters and then see if you disagree with him?

I watched the video and I disagree with him.


That's fair, you have to see what's happening to make an informed opinion so I respect that.

So yeah, once upon a time a lot of DTJC was a craphole too. Back then I wouldn't be living here either. What I don't get is why you think that because I live in DTJC that I somehow owe people in other parts of JC something. Why should I care that Greenville is a ghetto that I would never set foot in? So like I said, my only wish with places like that is that they weren't in my city at all.

As to my general hatred of ghettos and most of their dwellers - look at what is going on in Milwaukee. All of those rioting were net negatives long before and only know how to say "gimme dat!" There was an interview (before all the reporters fled) with some distinguished gentleman that blamed the riots on the rich not giving their money to individuals like him. The greatest shame is that we're not machine gunning the rioters down.

Jersey City is no different than any other city. Everyone is free to live - in their own separate sections.

But seriously, if the current dichotomy in Jersey City bothers you well you need look no further than the decades of increasingly progressive liberal government that has been overseeing the situation all along.

A good rule of thumb, given that you seem new, is that there are about ten regular posters from DTJC who channel Donald Trump.

I'm not generalizing everyone - but I am noting that the situation outside of DTJC is much worse than in. And of course there are exceptions - that strip at the cliff of the heights is quite nice. But the point was still valid.

You sound like exactly the type of person I object to paying for. And these hoods are exactly the sort of people who need to go to a work camp so society can extract at least some value from them.

As for me, they can say hello to my two large dogs (I wouldn't walk at night without them).

I owe you nothing. I owe them nothing. Try to take what is mine and good chance it will end badly. And our city shouldn't be worried about giving you anything you didn't earn. Work harder, get a better job, then maybe you won't live like crap.

Luckily WAZE and Google Maps both show all the construction and slowed traffic jams Downtown -- so that might stop many.

Does anybody on this site read? I posted an article that went to considerable lengths to explain the original application (jewish) of the word, which is why I'm pretty sure the Brooklyn jews wouldn't really be down with it. The article also went on to say that the usage and meaning of the word has changed a lot - as happens with many words.

Not every renter in JC needs to invest their time and effort into being concerned about the entire city.

I would say the majority of downtown renters only care about their immediate surroundings and their ability to get to the city. Unless they are investing in other parts of JC, who cares if they are living and comfortable in their downtown bubble.

While it sucks that most of Greenville is stricken by crime and undeveloped areas, that really is not of my concern as I have no desire to frequent or invest in those areas. If you want to help out the people of those areas and get involved, all the power to you - but don't expect those that are happy living and spending their time downtown to have the same passion as you.

LoL you do realize that the term "Ghetto" was originally used to designate where Jewish people were allowed to live.

Think you're struggling with the word ghetto. It can and does have more than one meaning. To me Newport is a ghetto.


when I lived overseas, we referred to any neighborhood with a concentration of westerners as the "expat ghetto."

Not struggling at all - pretty sure I explained its outdated and current uses quite clearly. Point is, "ghetto" is a pejorative term, at least as it has come to be used:

http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitc ... w-ghetto-lost-its-meaning

Ghettos were always defined by lack of choice ? they were places inhabitants were forced to live, whether by anti-Semitic governments, discriminating neighbors or racist practices like redlining. Sociologist Mario Small argues that these limits have largely been lifted, such that researchers should no longer consider "ghetto" a useful word for urban slums.

And indeed, use of the word "ghetto" in print has been declining since the early '70s. But slang variants have been rising in popularity since before the turn of the millennium. And a quick glance at social media suggests they're not going away; on a recent weekday, twitter users referenced "ghetto" almost 20 times per minute.

"Being ghetto," or behaving in a low-class manner (see also: "ratchet"). "Ghetto fabulous," flashy glamour without the wealth. "Ghetto" as an adjective, roughly synonymous with "jury-rigged," for anything cobbled together out of subpar materials.

The replies I'm seeing here are absolutely ridiculous. So the OP made some naive and ignorant sounding remarks. At least he/she seems self-aware of that and wants to want to get out and make some positive change. The "community" here should look beyond the cause and focus on the effect.

How many of you drive through those same parts and say "this part of JC is a dump, *someone else* should do something about it?" At least he wants to try and make a positive change and wants to get off his ass and do it. All anyone on this forum seems to do is bitch about the mayor, taxes and transgender bathrooms without personally contributing anything themselves. Why not do something to actually encourage someone who wants to make a positive change? Unbelievable.
