Difference Between Ghetto and Hood

Ghetto vs Hood

“Hood” is the short form of “neighborhood,” and “ghetto” is used for describing slums or places where a large group of people live.

Though “hood” is a word that is a shortened version of “neighborhood,” it has more meanings attached to it. Like “ghetto,” “hood” is also termed as a slum or a poverty-stricken place within the precincts of an urban area. The poor areas in the rural areas are known as a ghetto rather than a hood. By tradition, the word “hood” referred to the areas where the majority of the population was African American. In modern terms, a ghetto is an urban area where a specific racial or ethnic population is consolidated.

“Hood” and “ghetto” are places where one does not want to live. These are places where crimes are prevalent. These are places where the drug trade flourishes. Hoods and ghettos are places where the crime rate and poverty are high. These are places of illiteracy and unemployment. Life in the hood and ghetto is very difficult. Though some people have come out of the life in a hood or ghetto, there are still hundreds who fight hard to make a living here.

“Ghetto” was first used in Venice for describing the area where the Jews were forced to live. Jews were only allowed to live in Venice and other European cities for just 15 days during the Renaissance and Middle ages. The area the Jews lived was near the slag site. “Ghetto” is a word that has been derived from “ghet” meaning “slag” in Venetian.
