Is Brahmin a controversial word

I was discussing the concept of Brahma but I wonder if it is controversial?

My fundamental belief rests on the equality and equity of all individuals, yet I recognize the capacity of British culture to reform and modernize outdated institutions while preserving their traditional essence.

I fail to understand why Hindus cannot adopt a similar approach, acknowledging the flaws of the caste system while reforming it to retain its beneficial aspects, such as buffering against the isolating effects of globalization.

These are just scattered thoughts, and I’m keenly aware of my position as an outsider in the immensely exquisite world of India, Bharat, and Hinduism. I am always willing to listen and learn.

this is happening on the society level as the accepted fact that brahmins are scholarly, vaisyas as entrepreneurs, shudras as craftsmen and farmers etc. but the voices which comes out in english /western press is highly woke and does not accept this fact and wants a ‘ revolution’.
vaishyas are the biggest group of leading businessmen in this country.

I think to me personally this idea is agreeable intellectually. But, while in control, there’s a violent part in me who’s in active denial about the need to change because those who demand change, or rather want abolishment, are the majority voices in wanting change. What therefore will this change look like? Do we want to see people read caste in the minutest ways and deny anything more to it? As many practice it to be. For example there’s narrative about how Holi is casteist and apparently Diwali is too etc. who’ll establish fact in what are stories with little to no historical evidences? Who will win? The conflict purists doesn’t it? And if it does your mind is never at peace. It is always wondering and negating everything. Who in this state of mind would want to practice reform. Note I am not against reform, I want it but it’s just so hard to practice it looking that the state of this whole world.

Hindus could have done it but for the competition and sometimes hate between diff caste groups.
