(NBC Washington) — NPR aired an eight-minute feature on D.C.’s Anacostia neighborhood on Tuesday morning. The website version was titled “D.C., Long ‘Chocolate City,’ Becoming More Vanilla” — but even with the flavorful name, it left a bad taste in many locals’ mouths.
On the air, reporter Alex Kellogg said, “There’s major changes going on in Washington, D.C. This is a city that, in 1970, was about 71 percent black. And now it’s about 53 percent black, as of 2009. . . . That’s a city that will soon no longer be majority African-American, and a lot of the gains are in the white population that’s moving in.”
In the online version, Kellogg wrote, “For decades Washington, D.C., was known affectionately as ‘Chocolate City’ to many black Americans, because it was predominantly African-American.” But D.C. “has quickly become one of the most expensive cities in America, and one of the only cities in the U.S. where property values continue to rise despite the economic downturn.”
