Some people believe that the Socs struggled more in The Outsiders because they are rich so everyone thinks they have everything they want, but really they do not have their parents attention, yet that’s really all they want and others believe the Greasers struggled more in The Outsiders because they have no money and have to work for what they want in life. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, both the Greasers and the Socs face different struggles in life, however, the Greasers have more difficult lives because they get jumped, lack of money,they get put down by the Socs and have titles over their heads. The Greasers are always getting put down and getting hurt by the Socs. In The Outsiders,Ponyboy states
The characters in these books fight against the injustice to make their world more fair. Characters from The Outsiders experience injustice and fight against it. Greasers experience injustice in behalf of the fact that they are poor. This is confirmed with: “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped, or someone will come by and scream ‘Greaser!’ at them…”(Hinton 2). Greasers are judged for being poor, but the rich kids aren’t judged when they break the law for fun, when the greasers can barely obtain enough money to eat.
Socs don’t even have to worry about any of those problems.Greasers are from the West while the Socs are from the East. This is already a big problem. The Greasers come from a poor area while the Socs are rich. Socs treat Greasers bad because of where they are from. Darry and Sodapop have to work to keep a roof over their head and to keep the family together.
Pony and Cherry also come to the realization that every person have a hard life and they all have troubles that they try to overcome. The comments of Pony and Randy illustrate that the greasers have problems that are much harder than the problems of the Socs. In the world, people often think that they have problems that are as hard as others’; yet, this is not true at all, as some people have lives that are much harder than
In the essays, “The Joy of Reading and Writing; Superman and Me” and Frederick Douglass’s “Chapter 7: Learning to Read and Write”, Sherman Alexie and Frederick Douglass write about their hardships and challenges they faced while learning how to read and write due to their social economic status.

I would leave this city like many other humble people because if I stayed here I would be very selfish and have a lot of guilt. Staying in Omelas implies that you’re selfish and that you don't care about others. It means that for anyone that would stay in Omelas it's all about them and that they are happy throughout their lives. To them nothing matters on why or even how they’re happy but the fact that they are. The second reason I would leave Omelas is because I would have extensive guilt for this child and what he has gone through.
On the other side, Cherry characterized the greasers to be too emotional which led them to antagonize the Socs and causing conflicts. Throughout the book, the theme rich vs poor reflected the Socs and greasers. As the conflict continues, it slowly came to an end when the Socs became more humanized by the death of Bob. As a gang, the greasers were always terrorized by the Socs which created many conflicts. For instance, Socs
The Greasers Struggle In Life No one can go through life without struggle. Unlike others, people struggle more than others. In the realistic fiction story The Outsiders, S.E.Hinton shows how the life of the Socs and the Greasers are imperfect.
