10. It doesn't work that way
the Supreme Court has never treated DC as a state becuase it is controlled by CONGRESS. It's not going to start today. In fact the court had to read an equal protection component into the 5th amendment in order to desegregate Washington D.C.s schools, after Brown v. Board of Education (because Brown was based on the 14th amendment which only applies to the states).
