Abstract 

In this piece, Spencer Perkins connects an experience, in which he was treated disrespectfully while fishing with his son in a pond in an exclusively white neighborhood, with the larger subjects of racism and racial sympathy. Perkins discusses his anger surrounding racism, and the anger he feels when white people claim that African Americans are also racist. He ends with the thought that if white people begin hearing the anger, reconciliation between the races could become possible.
