I was on on the Capital Crescent trail yesterday night (~9:00) and in the Kenwood section I saw two juveniles who clearly looked like they were in the wrong neighborhood come out of the woods from one of those houses. Since I whizzed by them I didn't get a good look but it looked like they were riding bright pink bikes (girls bikes). I wondered if I should have called the police?

This is 12:33 - yeah I grew up in Glen Echo area and that is what got me thinking...what are two young black kids with dreads and boxers hanging out riding pink bikes in a neighborhood of $2 mil plus homes? Not being racist at all just observations.

Can't a brother ride a pink bike? This is the 2010s.

I hate anonymous comments. If it's worth saying it's worth putting your John Hancock on it. As a New York born and raised son of a Puerto Rican mother and Ecuadorian father, I am aware of racism, even though it may not have affected me personally. I've lived at Kenwood Place Condominium for the past twenty years and am aware of how racism works as evidenced in "I'm not racist but...". I believe our older society cannot change but hope our youth no longer finds it odd that two young men with dredlocks are riding pink bikes in our neighborhood.
