Rickey Smiley asks Gary With Da Tea why he- and many black folks like him -are so afraid of going onto the lake with him. Rickey says he hears so many people say, “oh, I’m not going out on that lake, it’s haunted,” when the reality of accidents having to do with the lakes is people making poor decisions, like texting and driving.
