Castism is to rape a woman simply for being a Dalit.
Castism is to lynch a man and put his severed penis in his mouth for loving an upper caste girl.
Castism is punishing someone in the most gruesome way for wearing shoes or good clothes. 
Castism is to force a community to eat rats and drink water from potholes.
Castism is to rob someone of his labor, his lands, and his self-respect.
Castism is to benefit from thousands of years of systematic oppression and then have an objection to social justice and affirmative action.
Castism is NOT pointing out which class came up with the idea of caste oppression and which class benefits from it.
