One theme in The Outsiders is “friendship” this is shown all throughout the book and movie . One example of this theme is when Johnny killed Bob, who was a socs, to defend his friends. This occurs a lot with Johnny, who had very poor home life, for him it was all he had was friends. Another example was when Ponyboy ran away with Johnny to help him get away so he wouldn't be caught.

I love the gang and everyone in the gang because we all stick up for each other. If everyone in the gang robbed stores like Dally did all of us would be in jail but not my kid brothers they would be in a boys home and I would never see them again because robbing stores is illegal. I believe that Johnny used self defense because my kid brother Ponyboy was going to be drowned. If Johnny would not have killed Bob the rumble would be harder with one less man on are side and 2 more men on their side. If I lose one more family member then I do not know what I would do.

There are two gangs in this novel, the greasers, and the SOcs. The greasers live on the east side or rough side of town. 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 if they are a greaser or Soc. Stereotyping is an unfair way to judge people because you never know their whole story.
I never really thought about our racism being hidden by our silence making it invisible “in the background of Whiteness” (Rothenberg 19). I think often the media plays a negative role in this form of discrimination, as while watching the news most of the broadcasts show people of color being arrested for felonies. Our text points out that whites stereotype African Americans as being dangerous. And I must admit when I am in a strange city, I am uncomfortable and immediately lock my car doors in areas where many black men hang out on the streets. Like the couple in White Privilege, I may also feel intimidated and not board an elevator alone with one big black man, even though I have in the past.
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.
He ran into the cowboys and tricked them into thinking that they had set up an ambush to scare them away. He got back home, but his dad never came back. He came to the realization that they probably put him on a prison ship and that they would release him when the war was over. Him and his mother were left to run the tavern by themselves. This ws very accurate because, during the war most of the men went to fight, so the women and children had to do most of the work.
Furthermore, Palmer claimed that these raids were a success, but the American public saw the brutality of these raids and questioned it. The largest Palmer Raid took place on January 2 1920, where 3,000 to 10,000 people were arrested in 30 or more cities, and some of those were only guilty of having a foreign accent. The irrational fear of communism is shown through these raids, for authorities arrested anyone that seemed like a threat such as having a foreign

They are cross breeds a lot of time.People also think that pitbulls are for fighting dogs so people don 't get them because they believe that pit bulls are only to fight other dogs and they don 't do nothing else except fight. Counter argument When a city banned pit bulls from it the dog bite rates when down a lot. Pit bulls are super aggressive they are just all bad bloodline and they just bit people.In 2004 a city had 52 pit bull attacks on people then they put regulations on pit bulls. Over ten years there was only 13 as of 2013. Pit bulls should not be banned because people make rumor about them that arnt true and don 't take care of them properly so they show aggression.
