When does a social difference become a social division?

Q.2 :- When does a social difference become a social division?

 

Answer :-

A social difference means the difference in a group of people due to their race, religion, language or culture. It becomes a social division when some social differences are joined by another set of social differences.

In other words when two or more social differences, join together, it turns into a social division, e.g., the difference in the blacks and the whites in America is due to their different races which is a social difference. It becomes a social division when, say, the income factor is also seen. The blacks tend to be poor and homeless and the whites tend to be rich and educated. This creates a division in the people making them feel that they belong to different communities.
