A lot of jokers out running in place, chasing the style
Many people try to fit in with what’s cool, while not really being productive
Even after Pecola convinces herself that she has blue eyes, she still wishes she could of the bluest eyes. This gives homage to the fact the quest for attaining beauty never stops. There is a constant competition between the individual and society. It is hard for one to be completely satisfied with their place is society, so they are still “chasing the style” and yearning to be at a higher place in the hierarchy.
