In "The Fight" by RICHARD WRIGHT, the narrator reacted to the situation by fighting the kid's who joked on him in the the yard. The kid called the narrator ugly and then he called the boy's mother a name so the boy got mad and the narrator fought the kid.he made sure to land every punch so that he wudnt have to fight a kid every single day. I would react the same way I mean it depends on what type of school. If a school has trouble makers there will be fights, but if a school has who kids are trying to pass their grades, then there shouldn't have be a worry about fights. This actually happened to my friend before where it was a situation, where he had to fight some kid in his high school because they were starting with him. He had fought the kid and finally got his respect. They left him alone. The narrator's reaction was appropriate, because if he didn't fight they would have picked on him everyday. For an example, when he was in the park the boy's walked up to him and called people from Jackson ugly so the narrator said something about his mother. Some examples, from the text where after the narrator faught the boy in the yard. He felt he had respect, "In the classroom the boys asked me questions about myself; I was someone worth knowing" and another time after school "When the bell rang for school to be dismissed, I was set to fight again, but the boy was not in sight" the narrator was now known as the kid not to mess with in school.
