Stereotyping is an unfair way to judge people because you never know their whole story. It is wrong to judge someone just by who they hang out with.

This changes Pony’s belief that all socs were evil because”Randy was too cool to feel anything yet there was pain in his eyes.”(116)Pony continues to hate the socs but this changes his view on the socs and reminds him they're human too.

Ponyboy has a new understanding of the Socs now. Two-Bit and Ponyboy visit me in the hospital and saw that I was very weak.

For example the way the crime in the candy store was revealed, “An Italian was murdered in a candy store, shot five times, his brains dashing the wall near the comic-book rack.” The way this phrase was expressed shows an abusive childhood that destroyed his innocence which was reflected with the candy store and the comic-book rack. The way the author talks about his mother in the bus gives an image of a single mother who does not have the support of the father which gives a better understanding of why the author feels and thinks the way he does.

They are thought to be worth less because they do not have as much as other people. The Socs were the rich who thought they were better than the greasers.
