Ok, Hello to everyone, When I started to read the Gangs article, I got some doubt, I want to share with all of you in order to help to other studing to encrease skills.
It is about the Black ghetto.

Black guetto.

This phrase is about the social concept. For other uses of the word "ghetto", see Ghetto (disambiguation).

A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure.[1] The term was originally used in Venice to describe the part of the city to which Jews were restricted and segregated.

"it had to do with conflicts between African Americans and Jamacians, um, pretty territorial"
This sentence is subtracting from the conversation, and I'd like to explain something with the phrasal verb "to do with.

it had to do with conflicts: Tuvo que ver con conflictos
To do with....: Que ver con...

To do with meaning:
have (something/anything) to do with
be something/anything/nothing to do with


to be connected with someone or something, example:

Most of the articles have to do with America's role in the world since the end of the Cold War.

Was the dispute anything to do with safety regulations?
