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. This is a big deal because if Ponyboy is scene with Johnny then he will be accused too.
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.
David Morrow analyzes the 1919 World Series Scandal as a detriment to basketball as a whole. The whole scandal changed the point of view of many Americans who thought the sport was completely honest. According to the article, the new commissioner wanted to Jayakody 9 show that gambling and other acts of dishonesty would not be tolerated so he banned all eight players who were involved with the scandal.

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. It is wrong to judge someone just by who they hand out with, or what gang they are a part of. In The Outsiders, Cherry, a Soc, and Ponyboy, a greaser, are at a Drive-in movie.
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.
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. Baldwin wanted to show that music was the one thing helping with Sonny’s pain.
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.
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
Shortly after he got involved in illegal activities and met Johnny Torrio. They later became friends/partners and saw a golden opportunity in using the 18th Amendment(ilegalizing alcohol) to gain massive profit in bootlegging it. ”In 1925, Capone became boss when Torrio, seriously wounded in an assassination attempt, surrendered control and retired to Brooklyn. ”(www.fbi.gov).Before leaving Torrio gives him advice not to make the business to big and to stay local. Capone ignored his mentor/friend’s advice and lived the high life and making a huge fortune making himself known throughout the country.
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.
By 1932, Americans had reversed the approval and disapproval making the disapproval rating had gone higher. Americans disapproved the prohibition because the criminality and murder went up, business’ were going down and it was impossible to enforce no alcohol. The rate of criminals went up leading to more murders when the Prohibition was enforced. Many criminals such as gangsters, racketeers, bootleggers, and dope sellers got “helped” out by prohibition. Especially in the Great Depression, were alcohol was even more wanted.
These are very often times false confessions and the people are just trying to get off easy and go to jail without causing people trouble. But the false confession just riles up the crowd way more than needed and the accused just ends up getting killed. The boys were very lucky in only getting jailed for a small amount of time and weren’t found by any sort of mob. Tom was also lucky in the fact that he didn’t get attacked by the mob, but he never got to see his family again after he was imprisoned.
In both the book and the movie, Boobie Miles is injury prone and not very bright. But only in the book is Boobie found likeable by his peers. He is injury prone in the book and movie because he gets hurt in the very first game of his senior season. He was able to return for one game but happened to reinjure himself (Page 56, Minute 31).
Later in the book we see how this really affected Johnny because he ended up killing bob, the soc who tried jumping him and ponyboy. If the socs never tried jumping then neither Bob nor Johnny would be dead. I will apply this to my life by always trying to find a better solution. We now know from reading this book that fighting may solve problems but it will create bigger ones. I won’t result to violence no matter how hard it
most of the cops of this time would turn a blind eye and easily take payoffs because their other option was to be killed by the gangsters. The police were just down right scared of them because of this and they knew they were outgunned and had no chance. (FBI) But many of the systems we have developed and still use today were thought of at this time. Our system of fingerprinting is probably the best example but at this time it was still sadly in its infancy and didn 't have all of society in the system.
