Really? All the *more* reason why descendants of those rapists shouldn't get reparations. Is this the "sins of the father" visited on the children? You just need to stop and listen for a while, you're digging that hole deeper and deeper.

DC is a second-class citizen as far as representation. It isn't the capital of all other states, it's the plaything of the congress and is victimized over and over by having their initiatives cancelled out by congressional oversight that no states are subject to. Same with the territories. Look at how Trump was able to ignore Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, they have so little obligation to be helpful or supportive.
