Even if we accept your premise as true despite the link above, the conclusion does not follow.

Fail.

Chicago is the most segregated and least tolerant city!

Thank the Daleys for this massive failure!

Ask the people of the South Side of Chicago:

Chicago most segregated city in America

Chicago most segregated city in America

Ask the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago, America’s most segregated big city

Chicago, America's most segregated big city - Chicago Tribune

Ask African Americans in Chicago:

Chicago is Nation’s Most Segregated City

Chicago is Nation’s Most Segregated City | News You Should Know | BET.com (http://blogs.bet.com/news/newsyoushouldknow/chicago-is-nation%E2%80%99s-most-segregated-city/ - broken link)

The articles you cite all reference the same source (except for the one that doesn't cite a source at all but probably based its claim on the same source since these articles all came out at approximately the same time) -- which derived its ranking via black/white segregation only, as if integration between other races doesn't matter. Try using a more comprehensive source -- such as, say, census data. Or better yet, just shut up already.

Wrong! Three different sources all came to the same conclusion:

CHICAGO IS THE MOST SEGREGATED AND LEAST TOLERANT CITY!

This is probably why it has suffered more population loss than any other city in the U.S.

Once people can afford somewhere better, they get the heck out!

And hilarious! "Other races"! LOL! We are talking about Chicago!

Wrong. Did you even read your own sources? The Tribune conducted the analysis, and only of black/white analysis, and only of the 20 largest cities. The Examiner cites the Tribune. BET doesn't cite anything. FAIL.

Do you ever get tired of being proven wrong, or is it a hobby of yours?

Of course they look at blacks and whites! We are talking Chicago here!

This is what Chicago "diversity" is all about! Blacks and whites!

If you want to look at real diversity, you would have to go to a diverse place, like New York or California.

IMO this thread has probably discussed Chicago enough. I don't think this thread was even supposed to be about Chicago or what town is "the least racially tolerant."

Not surprisingly, you are wrong yet again. Every time you open your gob and say something about Chicago, you're wrong. Considering you know shag-all about this city, you sure have a lot to say about it. Go sit in a corner and ponder that paradox for a while.

Chicago's combined black/white population is 65%. So go tell the other one million people who live in this city who are something other than black or white that, in your version of Chicago, they don't exist. Or better yet, just shut the hell up already because you couldn't make a factually accurate claim about Chicago if doing so would magically double your IQ to 30.

Tell it to the Chicago-hating trolls who insist on turning every thread into a "Chicago Sucks Even If I Have To Constantly Lie About It To Make It Sound Like It Sucks" thread.

Segregation does not necessarily equal intolerance, so there is still no backup for Osito's claim.

Tell that to Osito. ALL HE DOES IS ON HERE IS BADMOUTH CHICAGO, and he does a pretty bad job considering he rarely has anything true to say about the city. You perhaps thought I wasn't serious when I called him out for turning this into another anti-Chicago thread. Look at his recent postings and the vast majority of them (>95%) are him bashing Chicago.
