A: To classify or separate (people) into groups

Q: How is the American society stratified?
A: Society is stratified in several ways such upper class, middle class, and lower class. Each class is further subdivided into smaller classes related to occupation.

Q: Do you think there is an impact on society when groups are stratified?
A: I think that no matter what if you "group" people into certain groups there will be some sort of impact. For example, slavery. The slaves were forced to work for the rich white man thus creating a problem for the slaves and ultimate;y the white people. AS the problem continued to worsen there were other issue that would arrise due to the original problem.
