White Girl Mafia Invades the Soufside; lower MLK Avenue
After leaving yesterday’s Ward 8 Community Summit, I saw a sight that reminded me of my younger days coming up in the city’s uptown neighborhoods nearly a decade ago. The “white girl mafia” is not the same mafia of Soprano and Vito Corleone fame that we all know and love due to popular culture’s fawning romanticism. No, this mafia is quite different. Taking no prisoners, the “white girl mafia” has a well entrenched presence in uptown and cross-town city neighborhoods running social service agencies and non-profits out of their zealous zeal to make a difference in an environment they fall blinding in love with. Love can hurt, and some, including my man Quique, contend with experience as their irrefutable evidence that the cutthroat members of the “white girl mafia” do more to harm the communities they flock to than they do to help. Granted, we evaluate each case on its own merits. However, for tru (sic) city denizens they know like I know; when you see the white girl mafia coming to a block near you, you best run and hide because they undoubtedly will try to save you. We offer this short commentary as a warning to those it applies to (if you think it applies to you then it does); save yourselves somewhere else.
In actual factual reality, this group was not a group of tru (sic) white girl mafia members invading lower MLK Ave. SE. This group was from South Carolina in DC for a summer service project coordinated through and with the well-respected Monsignor East of St. Teresa Avila, the oldest Roman Catholic Church on the southside.
However, the foreshadowing and danger signs would only be ignored by a fool’s fool. To those that know, they know the ”white girl mafia” has it sights set on new territory. The time for expansion and further empire building is now. Get ready as the “white girl mafia” makes it way to East Washington in full force.
