There are two gangs in this novel, the “greasers”, and the “Socs”. The greasers live on the east side and are known as “hoods”. The Socs live on the west side and are known as the west side rich kids who have all the breaks. People judge their personality just based on where they live, and what they look like. Stereotyping is an unfair way to judge people because you never know their whole story.
How does gang violence puts an impact on society? Gangs have turned the society into a war zone between different gangs. Educating people about gangs would have people thinking should they really join. People should know the history of gang violence and the types of gangs they should look out for so they could stay away. Gang violence is nothing someone should play around with because you can get killed or even in trouble with the law for just associating with them.
According to the article “Is Racial Or Religious Profiling Ever Justified?”it states “ When officials use profiling, they are indirectly blaming entire communities because a few among them have committed horrible crimes”(Abbas 1). The quotation is illustrating how stereotypes is part of racial profiling because if few people were to do crimes that were illegal, many would think all people are the same. Police departments would think that all people are alike based on the increasing of violence and would blame communities. In addition, In the article “stanford researchers develop new statistical test that shows racial profiling in police traffic stops” it states, “Specifically, the study found that police decided to search black drivers based on a 7 percent certainty that they might be hiding something illegal. If an African American driver looks nervous, for example, police might interpret the nervousness as a sign of possible guilt and insist on a search” ( Andrews 1).

Hinton’s novel The Outsiders are to blame for the problems that were faced by the community that surrounds them. This can be said as the Greasers could have avoided the Socs in the first place, avoiding the problems faced in, and by the community. The gang of teenagers could have also faced their problems instead of running away from them, solving all the problems that they encountered and preventing new ones from emerging. They are also the ones to blame for the deaths that occur in the novel, and if they had not occurred, there would not have been as much tension that was faced that separated the rival gangs (the Greasers and Socs). In the end, the Greasers should be held responsible for the quarrels that occur throughout the

Harlem was not a friendly, rich, white town, so the fact that he chose this setting it made the reader automatically assume that these brothers did not grow up in a stable environment. The narrator described the very stereotypical gang members in Harlem being “filled with rage” and “popping off needles every time they went to the head” (Baldwin 123). Lastly, the change in the author's tone was very evident. The readers could notice when the narrator was talking about life in Harlem or Sonny’s drug abuse because it had a very bitter and cold tone. However, when Sonny was talking about his music the tone was hopeful and positive.
In Feld 's book, he states that "juvenile courts function to maintain social control of minority youths, predominately young black males" (Feld, 1999, p. 5). Again, the inferior, in this case, young black males, are suppressed by the "majority," adults, and, like adolescents, young black males are not taken seriously because of the negative stereotypes associated with their demographic. Barry C. Feld and Nancy Lesko both address the ideas of power and control, yet
In the newspaper article Youth Gangs Leading Cause of Delinquencies written by Gene Sherman for the Los Angeles Times, Sherman hits many hard facts regarding the relationship between the youth of the time and the local gangs. Overtime the largely popular Zoot Suits became a badge of delinquency, with more and more of our youth donning these new relaxed and mobile suits they where just assumed to belong to a gang even if they had no official gang ties. “Motives for gang warfare are ridiculous in adult eyes but sometimes lead to planned an bloody fighting” With little to no provocation a war could break out on the street. Just for looking at someone the “wrong” way could end with a knife in your gut. The Zoot Suits themselves were not to
