And If You Live in "The Ghetto," You By Definition Don't Use Google Maps?

Today's Failbook fail: A Million Dollar Idea.

Someone wishes for Google Maps to add an "Avoid Ghetto" option. So . . . really you mean, "avoid people not of my race," right . . . ?

"Ghetto" is a really racialized word, as I've learned multiple times over the course of my life. Even knows that. This guy could have said "slums" or "skid row" and I would've let it slide. But no, it had to be "ghetto." Bah.
