The second part reflects the wishes and reflections of a man born either in the sixties or fifties. He expresses how all causes of death got misunderstood. Angela King in her poem, Hands fishin’, makes one realize that African had the weirdest ways of fishing and the boy she was talking to was fishing the way she would expect Africans to fish (Smith, 25-26).

The Act reflects on the hard feelings individuals have as a result of injustices. Any injustices get to affect the comfortable existence among individuals. Therefore, for people to win the liking of others, they have to appreciate the good qualities of others. The Act speaks of the troubles some groups suffered under the mercy of other superior racial groups. The Korean poet of the poem, ‘swallowing the bitterness’ makes one see how uncomfortable the group being discriminated against feels.
