Living in Washington D.C. is certainly not what I expected it to be. I actually wasn’t sure what it would be like, but I didn’t think it would be like this. Maybe I had a skewed version of what our nation’s capital looked like because I’m from the Midwest, but I was expecting to see a lot of white middle to upper class white collar males, a large amount of people that looked like me.
I’m happy to be wrong. In certain neighborhoods and streets this demographic may be correct, but a majority of the neighborhoods in the District of Columbia are filled with a thriving diverse and ethnic background, one that can only be seen once you visit. It most definitely isn’t talked about. I didn’t hear about what our nation’s capital looked like except for what is up on the Hill.
