Caste system originates from a desire of a father to see his son do the same as him. There is always attachment of father to son, which is natural as both live in the same family.
Vedic system was designed to BREAK this father-son bond, and establish 'DHARMA' by educating children in residential schools AWAY from family.
A student did not go back to his family even on vacation. The student always stayed with the Guru, and Guru became his father. Parents had to come to the Ashram to meet him, if they so desired.
People who are unaware of Vedic system, just cannot understand how smart Arya were in designing their social systems. When you deeply study Vedic society, you will be stuck by how ideal it is, that it can only be created if God wished it so. No man can create such an ideal society.

Maybe it wasn't a factor up to a point but it did occur. The English brought in the caste system and may have started from that.
Yeah to be honest..it's still stuck with today's society. The fairer you are..the more beautiful you are and from a higher caste. The darker you are..the more "prostitute-like" you are. If you look at the Indian adverts, you'll always see creams to "lighten your skin."
