Sociedad de castas

The Social Heirarchy in Early Latin America


Sociedad de castas was basically another caste system, but this one was based upon racial origins. If you were European/ white you were at the top of the caste while anything else fell below like the blacks and the Indians - mixed cultures were the filling between them. Just think of it as a gradient from light to dark and the lighter your skin, the higher you were on the caste system and the darker your skin the lower you were.
