Social Groups

Socs – The Socs were the rich kids. They lived on the West Side. The Socs were always getting drunk and looking for fights with greasers. The Greasers always thought that the Socs had it better than them, but they find out that the Socs are cool to the point of not feeling anything. They find out that the Socs have it just as rough as they do. All of the Socs drove corvettes and wore madras. They got everything they wanted, but had to be cool.

Greasers – The greasers were poorer than the Socs or the Middle Class. They were wilder, too. When a Soc or Middle Class person saw a greaser, they immediately thought dirty troublemaker. They loved to hang out in gangs, but their kinds of gangs were a group of friends.. The Socs were always drinking and jumping the greasers.
