Looking through Indian history, it seems Brahminism/casteism remained relatively low after the infusion of Sramanist ethics into Hinduism. But it seems that British colonialism has reinvigorated this sentiment. Previously I thought this was because of Eurocentrism, but as you have pointed out, Turanian supremacism is not heritably Eurocentric. For example, as you mentioned earlier, there are some Brahmins who claim that they are superior to non-Brahmins (including Whites) because of their IQ test scores. This is because the economic system of the colonial era afforded those with high IQ test scores high positions in the colonial bureaucracy. While some simply accepted these positions out of economic necessity, opportunistic Brahmins, particularly those with steppe blood memory, saw it as a way to gain tribal dominance and express their Turanian blood more profusely.
