It was a way of having a slave system without having slavery, by using religious reasoning to put certain people in a position where they are made less then others you are perpetuating a convenient cheap labour system with the so called blessings of God. It was formed to supply labour cheap.There is litle limit to the evils that can come from the human imagination.
