【Abstract】 The suburbanization of American cities has great impacts on the relationships between American classes and racial groups. Because of the "filter down" process in the course of suburbanization, the rich and middle class people could freely move to the suburbs where the living environment was much more superior, while the poor people and minorities were confined to the central cities where the living condition became worse and worse. In 1960s and 1970s, there appeared a movement of opening up the suburbs. But because of severe class prejudice and racial discrimination, this movement failed at last.
