Two stories that are in correlation with each other are "The Fight" by Richard Wright and "The Confrontation" by Raymond Barrio. Aside from the titles of the stories having similar affinity they both share a common plot. In "The Fight" we see a young boy entering a new school being judged by his peers for his lack of familiarity with school and his origin. He finds himself in a "do or die situation" as one would say. As for "The Confrontation", a man by the name of Manuel is confronted with a daunting decision to either follow protocol or go against it. In both stories there are protagonists which birth both of the antagonists hardships. As seen in both stories, the main characters hold about the same weight when it comes to status and position. They both are perceived lower than what they turn out to be. In "The Confrontation" the main character Manuel, is strong minded and observes his surroundings with great detail. As seen in the story "Manuel had to force himself not to answer" making him a well controlled individual. As well as in "The Fight", the protagonist is well aware of his situation and both respond with strong actions. In "The Confrontation, Manuel is somewhat of an outcast due to his Mexican heritage and working in a field. The bully in "The Fight" can be connected to Robert Morales in "The Confrontation" as both hold the same position in hindering the protagonist. In "The Fight" the protagonist is treated unfairly and has to stand up for himself to get everyone to see how much of a strong person he really is. A boy comes up to him trying to pressure him and get him worked up but overall he stays calm and collective until the boy is pushed into the protagonist and is forced to fight. One can say the plot of both stories are very similar in that Manuel has to fight and use force in a sense to defend himself, not physically but in a metaphoric manner. Morales said he would take money away from the day's pay and in response to this Manuel tips over his bucket to fight against the pay loss. Both stories portrayed a very good message in which I took familiarity in. It showed me that no matter what you should always stand up for what you believe and to not let people hinder you. In each story I saw many reoccurring events however small they were. In "The Fight" I saw that the protagonist was strong and did what he had to in order to hold his ground. This is the same for Manuel in "The Confrontation" whom was getting schemed out of money by his boss. Manuel's boss only begun to stop his ways when everyone stood up to him from the strength Manuel gave them.
