The movie does imply that some of that animosity is a result of his experience as an LAPD cop.When he's having his final conversation with his former partner he tells him that he's still new on the force and doesn't yet know what to expect.

* IncomingHam: Quite a bit, though [[SandraBullock Mrs Cabot]]'s fuming racist tirade and Terrence Howard going Tupac on a cop who's stopped him stand out.

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: {{Deconstructed}} rather brtutally even though they didn't interact through the movie. [[spoiler:Waters is the detective who looks after his drug abusing mother, while Peter (younger brother) is out carjacking with a friend and is now dead.]]

''Crash'' debuted at the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival. It saw general release the next year and was the AcademyAward winner for Best Picture of 2005. This ensemble piece directed by Paul Haggis addresses racism affecting the lives of several Los Angelenos as they intersect over several days' time. The incident that starts it all off is the carjacking of a white couple, the Cabots, by two black carjackers, Anthony and Peter...

* YouAreWhatYouHate: Averted when Anthony, who's entire worldview is colored by the inescapability of racism and the history of slavery has a chance to sell a vanload of Asian refugees into modern-day slavery. He ends up letting them go instead.

Trivia trope.
* NiceGuy: Daniel Ruiz, the locksmith. He's a hard worker, family man, and doesn't hurl ''one'' racist insult with and without people around him. Even when Farhad accused Daniel of trying to cheat him, Daniel yells, but only telling to ''change'' the door.

* RecycledTheSeries: The TV show ''Crash'', starring the late Dennis Hopper as a misanthropic Hollywood producer whose life intersects with characters from all walks of life in LA. (See Series page).

Not sure why the phrase "class tension" potholes to One Degree Of Separation.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To the 1991 film ''Film/GrandCanyon'', which features Creator/SteveMartin as a misanthropic Hollywood producer (playing against type) whose life intersects with characters from all walks of life in LA, and which popularized the notion that LA was a WretchedHive of [[OneDegreeOfSeparation Class Tension]] less than a year before the Rodney King riots. If not, in fact, TheRemake of ''Grand Canyon''.

That's not what either of those tropes mean.
* TheCSIEffect: When Anthony tries to sell an SUV [[spoiler: with which he'd accidentally run over a man]], the chop shop owner turns him down with a rant about how every week on TV some guy thinks he can outsmart the forensic experts and [[GenreSavvy ends up going to jail with a stupid look on his face.]]

* TheCSIEffect: Invoked.

* EverythingIsRacist: Anthony endlessly rants about about being stereotyped as a ScaryBlackMan, as he goes around stealing people's cars at gunpoint. * FantasticRacism: The whole point of the film is what people, of all races, perceive of the different races.

** Anthony is a master at this. Just prior to the carjacking, he and Peter are leaving a restaurant and Anthony is complaining about the service, arguing that the waitress didn't serve them well because of the stereotype that blacks are bad tippers. When Peter asks Anthony how much of a tip he left, Anthony incredulously asks "You expect me to pay for that kind of service?"

No trope potholes allowed in page quotes.
->"It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we [[TitleDrop crash]] into each other, just so we can feel something."
