Ponyboy is insecure about his own impoverished upbringing and feels inadequate because the Soc's have money and are more respected in the community than his own family and friends. The Soc's also have a tendency to refer to the Greasers as "trash" which contributes to Ponyboy's resentment of them. He develops feelings for Cherry (a Soc) and through her friendship, eventually realizes the Soc's can be fair-minded and even compassionate.
