It was the narrator's first day of school in Richard Wrights "The Fight." Every new school he's been in included him in a conflict. He was anxious about the boys in his school and knew he wouldn't go the rest of the day without getting into something. During recess a bully approaches him with his friends behind and asked him a question. The Bully asked "Where you from"? "Jackson" Narrator answered. "How come they make you people so ugly in Jackson?" Bully demanded. "You're not any too good looking yourself" narrator said and it goes on and escalates into an argument. Suddenly it gets out of control and turns into a fist fight. The narrator swings first and hits the bully hard and enough for him to not look bad. When the bell rings the crowd quickly broke up the fight and scattered to class.
I agree with the narrators reaction because theirs always a solution and sometimes you have to show people what they want. I was in his position one time, I needed to defend myself to prove to others didn't come here to fight but I'm not scared to. In middle school there was a class clown and she didn't like me or my friend so she took upon herself to make jokes on us everyday. So I had to put a stop to it and she got me aggravated to the point that I had to swing. I won and she didn't make jokes or say a word to me or my friend from the next day and on. Fighting is not always the answer. My Opinion is there was no wrong or right about it.
