Conflict among minority groups


Conflict between minority groups may be fostered by the dominant group in order to maintain its domination. A group which is aspiring to join or come closer to the dominant group may despise its origins and suppress other groups which are still in a subordinate position. In the competition for available privileges, one subordinate minority might feel another is detracting from its chances, or it might see a privileged minority as the cause of its ills.
