    Actually, the roots of the word ghetto go all the way back to the 1500’s, possibly earlier, in Venice with the segregation of Jewish people into one section of that city. The word for centuries was associated with the Jews. Then, it evolved into an association with segregation, then with African Americans (because of segregation and its poverty). Now it is evolving again…into something associated with a culture.
