In Response To: [DC] What was life like? ()
I think u know the history of D.C., how it was really meant for the home of Presidents; later on as time went on people began moving in and making like home. Yet, down through the years, it remained just that the Nations Capitol, but bow with the over inflow of people and populaton growth and houses, schools, etc. and even the rights to vote, people within D.C. believe that it should be a state....afterall these same people pay taxes. People of all walks of life come out of D.C.; it is the place for the elite, for the best, and people even like Duke Ellington, Stirling Brown the poet, Nannie Helen Burroughs, Elinor Holmes Norton who is the Shadow Senator; it has four major sectins: South West, North West, North East, South East. It is the home of Federal Government Buildings, D.C. Governments, and I could go on. Yes, we do have our areas where Black folks dominate, and even schools, bridges, buildings are named after Black people. Much of our schools today do need some work done to them; and in a lot of ways we do have some poor conditions, but when I look at some of the other cities, D.C. is a palace.
