The caste system is the biggest black mark on the face of Hinduism. While the whole of Hinduism is struggling to eradicate it, I think this website is quietly harboring caste feelings.
Check some of the answers to these questions.
- Why Hinduism won't encourage inter-caste marriages?.
- Is stopping an inter-caste between a Brahmin woman and a Shudra man – dharma or adharma?
Note that some of these posts were written by users who have a lot of recognition on Hinduism.SE.
- I think something has to be done about the caste-system tag. While I'm definitely not for banning it altogether, it would be great if there were stricter definitions of what can be asked and what can't. Also, there should be moderation such that answers that are clearly against the modern Hindu values (posts that promote caste discrimination/prejudice, i.e.) should be removed.
