A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure.
As in 'Discovery Bay is the wife swapping ghetto on Lantau'
'Yat Tung is a ghetto for the 40,000 people poor living on Lantau'
The point is the poor are segregated in Hong Kong not that the USA has rougher poor areas.
Segregating the poor is a terrible policy that helps instill multi-generational poverty.
