Ethiopians and Somalians[edit]

On the DC city page it claims that there is a large Somalian and Ethiopian population in this district however, there is no mention of them anywhere in this article. It also states that they've given the local people a love for their food, but there do not appear to be restaurants here. Is this not where they are? Have they not left any marks whatsoever aside from residing here? (WT-en) ChubbyWimbus 02:41, 12 January 2011 (EST)

Where does it say this on the main D.C. page? Little Ethiopia is in Washington, D.C./Shaw. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 04:22, 12 January 2011 (EST)
In the "People" section. I guess it doesn't explicitly say it is in this area (just "D.C."), but I assumed it was implied based on the fact that this is the only linked neighborhood in the section:

"D.C., and particularly the metro area beyond the city limits, is impressively international—in the immediate metro area a whopping one third of the population is foreign born. The biggest immigrant group is no doubt from Central America, mostly from El Salvador. Latino culture finds its home in the city in Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights—both neighborhoods where you'll find all the various cultures of the city intermingling. D.C. also has a big African immigrant population, with exceptionally large and visible Somali and Ethiopian communities (who have bestowed on the city a love for Ethiopian food!)"

I guess a clickable link with this info to Washington, D.C./Shaw is all it really needs. I was curious to learn more and didn't look in the Eat section. I'll just add the link from the main article then. (WT-en) ChubbyWimbus 00:44, 13 January 2011 (EST)
