It is also interesting to note that ethnicity appears to have been lost more rapidly and more extensively as colonists became more involved in the plantation economy and as the plantation economy matured (see Wheaton, Anthony, Crass, Steen, Shlasko, Zierden, and Joseph on this topic). Finally, Joseph notes that the emergent southern social system of caste and class, itself a product of a culture based on racial identity, served to de-emphasize the material images of ethnic status in favor of a material culture that displayed social status, and Beck suggests that southern Anglicanism may have gained religious favor after the 1740s because it emphasized social place and social order.
