This paper will explain historical events concerning the cowboys and depict their true lifestyle which contrasts the stereotypes normally associated with being a cowboy, as well as summarize the novel The Day the Cowboys Quit. The historical cowboy strike of 1883 was led by Tom Harris, a ranch hand at the LS ranch in Tascosa, Texas. Harris was tired of being controlled by ranches that were owned by corporations only interested in monetary wealth, specifically five major ranches: the LIT, the LX, the LS, the LE, and the T Anchor. Additionally, the ranch owners were establishing new rules that did not allow cowboys to receive calves as part of their pay, brand mavericks, or run small herds on their employers’ land. Many cowboys felt cheated by these new laws and believed that they solely benefitted ranch owners (Zeigler).
While the Outsiders was more related to gang violence and the newspaper writers would always feature the rich gang, also known as 'the Socials' more often than the poor gang, also known as 'the Greasers.' Also, in West Side Story the gangs ended up being neutral, but in the Outsiders both gangs still despised each other.

In the Outsiders a Ponyboy was almost killed because he spoke to the girlfriend of a member of the opposing gang and in West Side Story they started the fight because they did not want Tony and Maria to be
Hanson and his Federalists affiliates on the two separate occasions. However, the same forces were present in other protests and mob functions in colonial and post-revolution America. Yet, those mobs rarely resorted to violence, especially murder and merciless beatings. One possible explanation as to why the mobs in Baltimore unexpectedly turned violent is that the European immigrant population of Baltimore City, united around a shared hatred of the British, developed powerful bonds in the preceding years because the city was founded on economic growth, not ancient social hierarchies or familial relations. There were reports of inter-Irish fighting in the midst of the riots, but German, Dutch, French, and Irish laborers in Baltimore City worked together on the docks and in the various public works projects.
The influx of so many Latinos has brought backlash from conservative Americans because there has been multiple crimes conducted by illegal immigrants. Because of the stereotypes, Hispanics and even those who look Hispanic can face prejudice through names and actions. Latinos of another country can be stereotyped as being Mexican in Southern California because of the large population. Even though Latino cultures share some of the same customs, they are all very different (Chapa 6). Latino countries all celebrate a girl 's quinceanera but not all of them celebrate the Day of the Dead.

It is also unbelievable that Wade had many chances in which he could have killed the whole crew, but didn’t. The movie as mentioned above also only supports the fact that the western United States ran rampant with factions that embodied criminal intent. It does however provide the audience with a view of the hardworking individuals of the west. The movie emphasized and glorified doing the right thing. That was also the theme of good versus evil.
As a foreigner from China Amy Tans mother explains in her own broken english language “That man big like mafia” (154). It was not necessarily a violent story, but Du Zong was an important member of the mafia. One can only assume what kind of violent acts a mafia boss does.
