This will lead, over time, into 2 or more distinct species of "human"
It's not just social class that will split and evolve. Attractiveness will contribute the fastest to this "split" in human kind. Ugly people don't generally hook up with with attractive people. Less of a factor but still relevant, poor people don't generally hook up with rich people.
If it were not for a global trade system... asia, northern europe/russia, parts of africa, the native americans, and many others niche people would have split into separate species in a few 10s of thousands of years.
For you non evolutionary folks... consider this, Most of the REALLY good marijuana that is on the streets now days is caused by FORCED evolution of hemp... or ALL non-GMO corns were selectively breed for 1000's of years from one single type of plant that has corncob that is less then 1 inch with kernels the size of sand grains.
In the same way that corn has been selectively breed, social and cultural methods will one day break the human species into 100's of types on humanoids given enough time.
At the rate we are going things could change much faster then most of us realize, and it seems not for the better.
Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
