I think I can interpret part of the above comment...my husband teaches high school English. Ratchet= wretched, bouchie (pronounced with a "sh")=bourgeois, and ghetto, well, in America it's typically a place where the poorer Black folks live. In other words not anything you'd want to have to deal with or live near because of crime and blight. An eyesore. Also it can be slang for the projects which is low income public housing. I over thought this I know. I don't want to offend anyone. I thought the comment was pretty funny because I understood it all. I teach Shakespeare. I hope he'd approve of my understanding of slang. :)

So what does one call a place where poorer non-blacks live?

Really? Sometimes in amazed by where these threads descend to (though I probably shouldn't be).
