    Yep, sorta like that. Caste in India is so important that if you belong to a different tier you can't get married with/stick with those who are on the higher level. Those who belong to the higher tier ones, the majority of them, look down to those who are lower than their own.

    My mother's ad for me read similarly: "Jewish mother seeks hot man to entice my forty year old son to finally leave home. Race not an issue. Just be a doctor."
