Breed It is a term with two different etymological origins and, therefore, with several different meanings. The concept can come from the Gothic word Kastan and make reference to the ancestry or lineage . For example: "The Baron of Chestwire is part of an aristocratic caste that has ruled these lands for centuries", "Illustrious castes should not be mixed with the people, milady".
In the same way, we must not overlook the fact that this meaning of caste can also be used with nuances when referring to animals. Thus, for example, it is customary to speak of a breed dog, which is one that is not the result of having crossed different breeds.
In some societies , castes are groups that make up a special social class and that tend to remain separated from the rest for religious, racial or other reasons. One of the countries where there is a caste system is the India , where castes are groups that belong to major ethnic unity.
Indian castes are closed groups linked to the hereditary; that is, membership is a birthright . It is said that the original castes of the Asian nation were four: priests, warriors, farmers and workers.
In the historical past the castes also had special importance. A good example of this is medieval society or even during the colonization process carried out by Spain. Thus, both in the Philippines and in America, he established a society that was based on three classes: the white one, which were the Spaniards; The black and the indigenous.
Those three social strata were considered to be pure. However, little by little, the establishment of relations between members of each other began to occur, so the situation led to the creation of castes.
Cruzas was the name by which those who were quite numerous and were created based on the classes to which the parent and the mother of the creature in question belonged were also known. Thus, for example, when a mulatto and a Spaniard were mixed it was considered that the son belonged to the Moorish caste; and if the offspring was the fruit of a Spaniard and an indigenous woman, it was framed within the mestizo caste.
Zambo, mulatto, chamizo, albino or coyote was the name of other of the many castes that arose during the colonization process carried out by Spain after the Discovery of America.
In another sense, chaste can come from Latin castus and refer to who refrains from sexual enjoyment . Chastity is a voluntary behavior that consists in the moderation of sexual pleasures for religious, cultural or social reasons. The ways in which each person He carries on his chastity can vary: for married people, being chaste implies fidelity; For Catholics who are not married, chastity means abstinence.
Casto is also what does not have sensuality : "We live a chaste and pure love", "He is a chaste man, with all his energy put in helping others".
