This chapter explores how the US city – any city – requires tolerance to function but also engenders intolerance. It discusses the various mechanisms by which urban dwellers negotiate the presence and their encounters with others different from themselves. Tolerance and intolerance are discussed in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and immigrant status. Numerous examples of these conditions and mechanisms are presented.
