AM I GHETTO QUIZ
As I think of a lot of things that us black folks do on daily basis I get the urge to scratch my head and question my ghettoism. Yup, I said "ghettoism". It's my blog site and if I choose to create my own word then either you learn the meaning of and how to spell it or kick rocks. Now back to the previous message. A lot of (x)'s we create some crazy rituals and actually live by them. It often makes me question if I am ghetto. So, I decided to post a quiz for this question replacing "I" with "You". After partaking in this quiz you will be able to answer this the same question on your own.

Okay, if you were able to identify or answer yes to at least five of these questions you are a little ghettoish. There goes that creating a new word again. Take this quiz with your friends and see who answers yes to 5 or more questions. This should be fun. Thanks for visiting my site and may you continuously be blessed. Peace.........
