City Paper is not for tourists
i’ve just finished laughing my ass off. i read “The Black Guide to Georgetown” (8/4) this morning. My fellow Caucasian commuters were a bit ashamed as I and another black commuter howled with laughter at the perils of visiting G’town. I like G’town, and as soon as some asshole starts talking about the “elite” in G’town and its whiteness, I often have to remind them that G’town used to be the projects to blacks before they were pushed out (sounds like the new stadium?) and have called my grandfather (a native Washingtonian of sound mind) several times to explain this truth. All in all, thanks for making my morning!
