Don’t you dare steer your family away from the parts of town where they would be likely to be subjected to violence. That would be racist:
A new app originally named “ghetto tracker” is causing all kinds of controversy.
In less than 24 hours, this brand new app created enough backlash to prompt an immediate name change.
Instead of “Ghetto Tracker” it’s now called “Good Part of Town.”
Still, critics call it racist and classist, saying it’s a way for the rich to avoid the poor.
The company has gone into frantic damage control mode.
In addition to the name change, the word “ghetto” has been removed from the app and the company’s website.
Also, after the re-launch, the creator swapped out the pictures on the website of a white family to include more ethnical-diverse families.
Acknowledging the way things really are cannot be tolerated, or the whole phony house of cards our television sets present as “reality” will come crashing down in ruin.
