- Program Description
In this episode of Basic Black, Daniels talks with host Kim McLarin about her book and what the stakes are for remaining a Ghettonation.
"That is so ghetto." The phrase has become part of mainstream American parlance — what once was a place is now used to describe a mentality or a behavior. The first ghettos were European settlements where Jews were confined. The new ghetto is a sort of mental settlement: one of degraded standards, attitudes, and ways of life — at least according to Daniels's new book, Ghettonation: A Journey into the Land of Bling and Home of the Shameless. It's a phenomenon that has exploded in popularity and marketability.
"I think that we're at a time where it's embracing and celebrating the worst that we have to offer — and that's not tied to class or race," she says.
