“Why does the ghetto exist?”​

Ignorant, unambitious illiterates running baby factories and making poor life decisions.
Ghettos / barrios expand because Democrats never stop recruiting more ignorant, unambitious illiterates from Mexico and other thirdworld countries. Simple shit.
Don't forget that politicians give INCENTIVES for having babies. It should be the exact opposite. If you are already on any type of tax payer funded program and you have a child, that funding should GO AWAY. Penalize irresponsible behavior. do NOT incentivize it.

What do Republicans do for those who reside in ghettos other than build more prisons?
Why did Democrats build the ghettos on the first place?

You can play this game all day, throwing rocks back and forth and get no where.
Poor areas exist and getting larger because "jobs for the masses" has been getting erased from this country for 50 years now.
Either outsourced to slave labor in China/Mexico etc. Or technology took their place.

Rational people live in the best circumstances they can, and they marshal every possible resource to do so (even if that is a Section 8 housing voucher).

The "ghetto" is a repository for those who are either less able than most others, or make poor life choices. Unfortunately, there is a birth lottery, and children are stuck with the people who spawned them, whether rich or poor. The pity is that often parents and their poor choices make life more difficult than it needs to be for their children.

Many people believe that The Government should establish a lowest level of existence...adequate housing, food, shelter, clothing, medical care...paid for by taxes on everyone else. But this scenario is not consistent with the U.S. Constitution, which theoretically prevents Congress from funding benefits to individual people (See Article I, Section 8).

Hence, other Western Democracies have established lowest levels of existence while "we" have not. Still, it is my understanding that in those countries, the culture of dependency is as big a problem there as it is here, with our cornucopia of Federal, State, Local, and charitable benefits that fund a base level existence for those who can't or won't get it for themselves.

As a society, "we" need to reach out to kids in "the ghetto" and make them aware of all the scores of people and programs which can help them rise from their wretched circumstances as they grow to adulthood, and ultimately become contributing members of the Middle Class. Or Rap stars. Unfortunately the ghetto culture discourages kids from availing themselves, disparaging such programs and "middle-class values" as "acting white," and such.

And so it goes.

Good stuff in your opinions.
When I think of conservatives and liberals...
Conservatives believe you are ultimately responsible for yourself. Secondary to that, your family bears some responsibility for you. Thirdly and lastly - yes, a good society can and should provide TEMPORARY assistance to those who have bad things happen for one reason or another. Temporary.
As well as society, along with FAMILY MEMBERS should take care of those who cannot care for themselves via physical/mental handicaps that are not self inflicted.
Liberals believe ultimately society is responsible for oneself. Secondary to that is the person themselves.
The problem with the liberal approach to poverty is they cause generational poverty and, as you say, a culture of dependence.
Like it or not - there are people who would rather live in squalor than have to do the work it takes to get out of it. Those people should not get rewarded for their laziness. And that is the overwhelming population of those receiving government assistance. They CHOSE not to work.

The opportunity is a full time job. It may require you to actually have to get up every morning and go to work. Ugh... the last thing they want.
....
Who is "they"? If you are talking about immigrants from Latin America, you will be very hard pressed to find anyone who works harder.

That’s definitely the fabricated cliche framed up nicely by you border hating Leftist globalists.
What’s weird though…you never offer any data to support such a neat, feel good THEORY.

Because the Democrap Party REQUIRES desperate, illiterate, needy people in order to stay relevant.
Why else would the party of filth recruit thirdworlders by the millions and beg swamp creatues to get out and vote?
They can’t win on REAL political policies….their only pathway to win is promising free shit, FEEL good rhetoric for degenerates and a commitment to dethrone evil whitey.

It's the truth. If you actually knew any immigrants instead of just cursing under your breath and avoiding eye contact as you put your windows up and break out into a nervous sweat any time you spot someone you think might be an immigrant (at a distance, of course) you'd know that.

The original "Ghetto" was a walled in area where Jews would be shot if they escaped. The Black "ghetto" is an excuse for social unrest.

??
No... I am not talking about Latin Americans
My first wife is Mexican. Mexicans are, or at least were, like Americans used to be - hard working people who do not want charity.

"They" is the abundance of white trash and inner city blacks who absolutely choose to receive handouts and part time jobs over working full time and supporting themselves. Many also have additional children to gain additional funds and subsidies.

There is noting wrong with low income housing.
Gentrification is very harmful and turns poor people into homeless.

The problem is not ghettos, but if people are prevented from leaving the ghetto even if they can afford it.
Such as redlining.

Well... yes there is when it is subsidized by the government to support lazy people to keep being lazy.
And it is wrong when the amount of subsidies and free shit directly correlates with the number of children you make.
I have a complete loser half sister that has 4 children by 3 different men. Not ONE of these men, or her have EVER had a decent job.
What they do have is 1,000,000s of excuses why they don't.
She has been on welfare and other government handouts for 8 years. She has not worked for one single day since.
Her in and out boyfriends either have NO job, or a string of part times jobs they either end up quitting or get fired for not showing up/arriving late.

And they can live this lifestyle for one reason and one reason only - government handouts.

There is very little government housing subsidies.
There is section 8 housing, but long waiting lists and you have to prove some disability.
There is ADC, but it does not really even cover the cost of the children.

No, the original Ghetto was where Jews were protected in wealthy housing, since they were often used as unpopular roles like tax collectors and needed protection.
It was only after the monarchies were overthrown, when Ghettos started to decay; and it was only in Poland in WWII when Ghettos became defacto prisons.

Yeah... all not true. At all.
My adopted sister has no disability of any kind, well except the willingness to work and make normal decisions.
All but one of her string of boyfriends and sperm donators had no disabilities.
Her disability is having 4 children with absolutely no means to support them.
She gets:
Reduced rent
Reduced utilities
Free EBT card for food
Free childcare essentials... diapers/clothing/food
Free healthcare for all 4 children
And got an extra $600 a month on top of this during Covid for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON AT ALL.

Add all of this stuff up, and it pretty much equals what one would make working a low end full time job.
So... they sit on their asses and get all of this rather than work everyday.
