It is an age-old regional debate that may be confusing to any outsiders: Is Baltimore a part of the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area otherwise known as the DMV? Depending on who you ask, you’ll either be met with a confused look or you’ll get an earful about what Baltimore is. But as a Baltimorean, I can definitively answer: No. Sure, Baltimore is a city in Maryland, but a majority of Baltimoreans do not consider the city a part of the DMV based on the differences in culture, style and authenticity. Charm City stands out on its own, separate from the region around it.
Angel Reese is from Baltimore, not the DMV. Yes, that matters.
