In a place where rich and poor, good and bad are fighting with each other.The Greasers had a rougher life than the Socs.The Greasers had a rough life because they were poor and they always get in trouble by the Socs.Greasers are people that can’t afford almost anything and People blame them for doing bad stuff always. The Socs are west side rich kids who basically can own almost everything.People think that Greasers are bad juvenile kids who always do bad things, but in reality they are just poor people that had to do bad stuff because they have to.
I am a greaser because they stick together and don’t pick on other kids. Greasers may be poor but they stay as a family. The difference between greasers and socs is that the socs pick on greasers, they are rich, and they are very rude. The greasers, on the other hand, are nice, poor, and they try and hide from socs. The greasers have long hair that is greasy and they are the middle class. The socs are the upper class and they have really nice cars.
Johnny Cade, the boy who saved a lot of kids from the burning church died in the year of 1965. He was only 16 years old, and he was born March 1, 1949. He saved at least four to five kids in the burning church. He died because he tried to save all the kids from the burning church but he got burnt trying to save all the kids. A piece of the roof caught on fire and fell on his back, his back was really burnt.
Greasers are “read in between the lines”, so they are conceived as inadequate. Since the socs live a nice lifestyle, they have an advantage of an automatic good reputation. In chapter 1 Ponyboy remarks,”Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped...We get jumped by the
Initially in the book, Hinton describes the characteristics of Socs and Greasers. The Socs are the rich kids who have everything, nice cars, nice clothes and have a bright future. The Greasers are the hoods, wild and rude to women. The Greasers mindset is that
The difference between the Greasers and Socs in the society is the Greasers treated unequally and criticized for being poor. The Socs are bullying, criticizing, and intimidating the Greasers based on the economic level. Greasers have unequal lifestyles, attitudes, and financial situations, but still live in the same world, beneath the same sun as the Socs (Hinton 18), but repeat the same actions toward the Socs in a way of fighting back and sticking together.
Ponyboy was released from hospital after a few hours while Dally was left with a badly burned arm, and Johnny was left in critical condition with a broken back after the roof collapsed, possibly leaving him crippled for life.
In The Outsiders, both the Socs and the Greasers spent most of their time in gang fights and disobeying the law. The Socs were wealthier and had a higher social status. “We get jumped by the Socs. I'm not sure how you spell it, but it's the abbreviation for the Socials, the jet set, the West-side rich kids. It's like the term "greaser," which is used to class all us boys on the East Side.We're poorer than the Socs and the middle class. I reckon we're wilder, too” (Hinton 4). The Greasers were poor and usually came from
One of the main vs man conflict in the Outsiders is the rival between the greasers and the socs. The greasers are the east side boys who " steal things and drive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations". The greasers, due to their family background and physical appearance, are being stereotyped as individuals who are poor and are provided with fewer opportunities than others. On the other hand, the socs, are " the west-side rich kids" who come from affluent backgrounds and" likes to jump greasers and throw beer blasts for kicks". In the eyes of the public, the Socs are the social elites whereas the greasers are considered the less privileged, second-class citizens.
There were conflicts between the Socs that conflicted with the greasers. They were two opposite groups that didn't get along. The Socs, "the jet-set...West-side rich kids, wear madras shirts, smell of English leather, and drive new sports cars..." (6). Socs were rich, while greasers were low class. "Soc" is an abbreviation of the Socials, which are the West-side rich kids. Socs had a better reputation than the greasers.
“We're poorer than the Socs and the middle class. I reckon we're wilder, too. Not like the Socs, who jump greasers and wreck houses and throw beer blasts for kicks, and get editorials in the paper for being a public disgrace one day and an asset to society the next. Greasers are almost like hoods” (Hinton 4). Society viewed the Greasers as lower class people who lived in poor neighborhoods. They had no cars and had to grease their hair back. There were seen as the derelicts and juvenile delinquents of society. The Greasers were an easy target for the Socs because they were already labeled and more subjected to be charged by the police. Society treated the Greaser as outsiders, hence the title The Outsiders. “We get jumped by the Socs. I'm not sure how you spell it, but it's the abbreviation for the Socials, the jet set, the West-side rich kids” (Hinton 4). Society viewed the Socs as rich kids. The Socs had everything such as money, a good house hold, high social status, cars, and fashionable clothing. The Socs did not have any problems because they had everything, even money to provide them with college. The Socs were accepted in the society because they were the upper class. They were the people that had the most power. Unlike the Greasers on the other hand who were the complete opposite. They were the lowest of the lower class, close to the point of being
In “The Outsiders,” the rival gangs were the Soc and the Greasers. The Soc’s were the rich, sporty students and the Greaser’s were the knife wielding, smoking, greased back hair kids. They were different in many ways and were frowned upon if they intermingled with one another. The Soc’s had money, fast cars, and the cheerleaders for girlfriends. Letter jackets, polo shirts, and docker pants was the wardrobe of choice for the Soc’s. They ran the school and the social scene. The Greasers were the poor class of town had beat up cars or walked, leather jackets, blue jeans and a white shirt. They usually had cigarettes hanging out of their mouths.
Greasers are the main stereotype in the book but also there is a small part played by the Socs. Although the book is about the life and times of a Greaser there is also a ‘Socs Story’ in there, as throughout the book you learn more and more about the Socs and how they live. But this all changes. When Bob dies Cherry and Randy, the main Socs characters, begin to see that there is no difference between Socs and Greasers. Randy, when he talks to Ponyboy in private doesn’t call
Have you ever noticed in “The Outsiders” the differences and the similarities between the Greasers and the Socials? Well I will be explaining and showing why the Socials and Greasers are different and why they are the same. I will also be giving evidence supporting Ponyboys thought that Greasers and Socials are the same.
A greaser is really a hood “gang” that no one really cares about but they get into a lot of trouble and go to jail a lot. A soc is in a higher class and are very smart and talented yet are very mean and brutal to the greasers. I would personally be a mean tuff greaser than the little rich kids that lose fights. The greasers and the socs have a war between them, neither of them like each other. The greasers get jumped by the socs all the time, and they are more scared of them because they are older, at least most of them. Quite a ways through the book, towards the end, the greasers and socs have a “rumble” it is kinda like a HUGE fight between everyone! All though the greasers won that doesn’t make any less of the socs. The greasers are all
