This story took place in thecapital of the United States.Not on the mall where the monuments stand, but in the ghettos where mosttourists don't visit. It's a story about one black male's struggle to grow upand how he had to go through problems that are unknown to the average American.This story also talks about random crimes. All, which isnormal to a black male in the district, but is foreign to the higher-class justliving blocks away.I wrote this story to enlightenwhoever reads it and at the same time bring humor to a matter which is mostlyconsidered to be tragic. All characters are fictional and all events arecreated to represent the average life of a black male in D.C. I enjoyed writingthis story of the life on the streets and hope that you too gain a new insighton how the nation's capital really is. Not from the politician's point of view,but from its black sheep. The people who pay taxes and loveits streets just as much as it's senior citizens. I'm writing about theinter-city youth.So please enjoy this story, butat the same time see how life can be a lot different when you're a differentcomplexion. This is one man's tale from D. C., or should I say one Tale From Dodge City.
