The Cheese Thesaurus

I looked ghetto up on an on-line Thesaurus but found no single word synonyms. But, thanks to Ernest Burkeen, I can now provide one:

Ghetto: Funky.

As in: Miami city leaders are apologizing for a news release that invited summer campers to a ''Ghetto Style Talent Show'' and ''Watermelon Eating Contest.'' . . . After being criticized . . . Miami Parks Director Ernest Burkeen, who is black, released a formal apology and announced the renaming of the talent show. The show will now be called the "Funky Talent Show" . . . . The watermelon contest will still be part of the event.
