Though you are entitled to your opinion, it is quite inaccurate. For example, the only place Hinduism had existed outside South Asia since ancient times is in Bali. Hindus there do have the caste system. It didn't come from their society. Hinduism is a 'religion' for the Balinese.Varna system is not paramount feature of Hinduism but of Indian society. Hinduism can easily survive without it. Neither four fold social system was ever strictly followed in every part of country. Local customs prevailed like where I lived only three classes existed who were totally interdependent. Endogamy existed but every class had nearly equal land, wealth and most importantly people had and still have warmth for each-other.
Secondly Hinduism is not a 'religion' but Hinduism is coalescence of various sects(often having conflicting views) who have been originated in the land of India and who practice mutual tolerance. They believe in existence of multiple ways for betterment of both self as well as society as well as in their limitations.
Geeta asks people to find their true calling and act accordingly without ever dettering from their path.
In Gita, Lord Krishna clearly states that he created the fourfold caste system, and urges Hindus to do their born caste duties (dharma) selflessly.
