He concealed his feelings in worry of looking soft in front of Socs or even worse, his fellow Greasers. His high IQ and good grades and interest in books and movies do not matter because he lives on the poor side of town. He gets judged on where he comes from, rather than on the person he tries to become and hopes to become. Johnny, the second youngest Greaser, gets jumped by Socs, and has feared them since the incident. Johnny, the loyal gang member, gets described as the gang 's pet.
In explanation, to young Montag, this would be justice because everyone needed to be equal, so there was no need to have bright kids in his class. However, this was a false sense of justice because what Montag did was wrong, and he did it out of the belief and the social conformity that strived to make everyone equal. Likewise, in Good night, and Good Luck, McCarthy had a false sense of justice when he was carrying out his investigation; he just accused anyone who could have been a suspected communist. Correspondingly, “despite a lack of any proof of subversion, more than 2,000 government employees lost their jobs as a result of McCarthy’s investigations” (History). Consequently, due to McCarthy’s high-powered standings and his need to create “justice,” he was able to accuse anyone he wanted without any evidence.
In S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, two different gangs, the Greasers and the Socs detested each other. The author uses Ponyboy Curtis to demonstrate a Greaser’s opinion of the Socs. Ponyboy had an evolving conception of the Socs. At the beginning, he disliked the Socs because they are rich and have no problems, but he changes his opinion because of some discussions he had with a few of the Socs. His final opinion is that the Socs are just people after all, and they have problems too.
To put in your words: “unpopular kids” with “cool kids”. It is socially acceptable for same to be paired with same, but never are contrasting bodies positively mixed in the world of advertisement. The juxtaposition of unusually paired bodies is visually clashing, and even though I wish it didn’t, it cases viewers to feel uncomfortable. This is effectively contributed to companies like Abercrombie and fitch that perpetuate the thought that fat women are not beautiful. To make things worse instead of donating the damaged clothes to the poor people the brand burns the clothes, as you want a certain kind of person to be wearing your clothes; the rich and cool one’s.
They know they can do what they want, and then gain back their respect for simply nothing. They can beat up the greasers because society cares nothing for them, and would side with the socs instead. The cops also see good in the socs more than the greasers, they are threatened by the the money of the socs. They aren't threatened by what they see to be poor teens, that steel and smoke. In general everyone in society is threatened by their money, they feel helpless against their money.
Randy, Bob, and Cherry were classified as socs. The stereotypical behavior of greasers usually has something to do with breaking the law, or being uneducated, lower class criminals.The behavioral stereotype for socs was usually rich snobs that enjoy picking on people with less money. The gang were outsiders in this book. They were greasers, but they didn’t really act like it, especially Darry. Most greasers spent their life breaking the law, or in jail, but the gang was full of a bunch of kids that just happened to have a small amount of money, and/or bad living conditions like Johnny.
First thing to remember, is the fact that since the greasers get jumped by the socs, (Johnny getting the worst beating out of the group,) they don’t have as much free will, unlike the socs, who think they can do whatever they want. To explain this further, if the socs and greasers lived in the country, like it states in the book, they wouldn’t feel the need to jump each other anymore because the stereotypes wouldn 't be in the country, unlike Oklahoma. Another way the setting affects Johnny is the fact that, Johnny wouldn 't have to fear both the his parents and the greasers. The meaning of this is the fact that Johnny wouldn’t have that depressed, dark personality. For instance, in The Outsiders it states, “He would have ran away a million times if we hadn’t been there.” (Page 12) This is showing that the group cares for Johnny even during this rough time.
Golding uses a group of boys to show that even in, children, the thing society sees as the most innocent can still become corrupted by an environment full of evil. Golding creates the character, Jack, the tough hunter but it takes Jack a little while to completely take on this role. In the quote, “‘I was going to,’ said Jack. He was ahead of them, and they could not see his face” (Golding 31), Readers can see Jack fail to kill a pig, Jack makes excuses as to why he did not kill it, however the reader can infer Jack did not have the heart to kill it because of his morals. Jack still has his initial innocence but later Golding shows how Jack will break his morals.
If milk is symbolic of youth, then the milk served at the Milkbar is symbolic of the corruption of youth. But the youths do not just enjoy the milk for its stimulating effects or its taste; they enjoy it for an escape from reality, from morality, from self (Davis). Feeling angst from living in such a dull and oppressive world, Alex and his gang take refuge in artificial stimulation as a source of fulfillment, and accept alterations to their mental states as a cure for monotony. But as a consequence of intentionally warping their morality and perception of the world and their lack of experience as responsible adults, Alex and his gang often fail to fully grasp the consequences of their violent actions (Davis).

If you have the mental ability and two arms and two legs you should be able to work. There’s no legitimate reason no matter what the situation is unless you just lazy and don’t want to work which is pathetic in my eyes. There are programs and resources available in grasp to help reach get help in difficult situation and government aid are put in place to come back homelessness. This behavior is disgusting and its unfair that we are getting our money taken away due to taxes while there are people who stand in the corner all day and make money which doesn’t even get taxed
Dolphus pretends to be drunk so that people can understand him; if he didn’t they might lash out at him for being different. That 's what the lack of intelligence does, it creates fear for the things people can 't understand. People like Atticus and Dolphus both new there was nothing wrong with the African American populations but they both needed a reason to be decent to them without being majorly scrutinized. In Atticus’ case his reason, the trial, almost wasn 't enough and he was almost hurt. Another big part where intelligence comes into play in the book is obviously the trial.
