In Asian countries, it is extreme. Somewhere in south Asia, for example, I've heard that jobs are based on skin color which is based on what caste one belongs to. The darker ones get jobs dealing with cleaning the street for example with a broom. The light skinned ones do governmental jobs or something that is not considered shameful.

In some places in South America, good jobs are for the light skinned as well. Dark skinned people do servant jobs like working in hotels. In China, I saw a documentary where, people are given jobs based on height and it is prevalent that if you are less than a certain height, you cannot do some types of work.

Here in North America, it is not usually told to people that you should do something based on your skin color. There is an expectation that one should be a certain way, and if you are not this way, the expectant is surprised. Some parts of the media will promote some people doing things if it fits in to old stereotypes and will not promote the vast majority not fitting the stereotypes. Our cast system shows itself when people of are victimized in some way, and the reaction of the public is sometimes depending on the color of the victim. And criminals of the same type are sentenced differently - more harshly if they are not white.


Any more?

just a form of class-ism/racism, maybe a mixture of the 2

in sikhism. all sikhs are supposed to be equal.. but thats a mindfuck.. your only considered equal when you have taken your religious vows,
then you are sikh, until you have taken vows, your not a 'real' sikh

kind of a mindfuck, cos when teh 1`st guru said all sikhs are equal, no more cast system.. not many listened.. 500 years on.. sikhs are as fucked up as hindus now with the cast system..

when their 'guru's told them no more casts.. :/

It is common that old beliefs creep in with the new.

nah kids, its not about skin color.

caste system was popular back in time in asia, these days they got it in India.

its about working your father job.

if your father was a doctor, you will be doctor too (no matter how good you are in it).

if your father was doin' some low standard job - you cant do anything else, even if you are genius with 200 IQ........

it has nothing to do with the racism, i know you love to talk about it and blame all your mistakes on it, but not this time........... ;]

in sikhism.. everyone is the same.. yes people get darker due to being outside in the sun more.. and usually (most cases) those people are the ones doing the demeaning jobs, people treat them as lowly, due to them being darker, the darkness shows people they work in the sun alot, so they must be a lowly caste :S

they are all the same race (indo aryans) well sikhs mainly...

same as hindus.. all indo aryans, later day vedics..

its not racism. its class-ism. in hinduism/sikhism...
controlled class-ism, that no one can say fuck all about, the 'gods' planned it like this

i dont know many other cultures where the caste system exists...

on the global scale.. the class war is not against any skin tone/color or race..

we just are goy.. we should accept it

Not true. I know some people from southeast asia and they do not all have the same skin color. Some are darker than me, others are light-skinned and this is in Canada where they live now, where they are not working in the sun all day. Nice explanation though.

lower castes are just a form of classism.
