Ghetto Latte

Seattlest has been all over the Starbucks "ghetto latte."

I'm really tired of people that don't live in a ghetto-like neighborhood using the term to glamorize something, as if living in the ghetto is glamorous or exciting. If people think it is, I can't imagine why they don't move into one. In the end Starbuck's use of the term is financailly exploitive and only furthers a concept that the ghetto is cool and people live in them by choice.
