What is cross cutting and over lapping ?
When many social differences overlap on one another that is called overlapping. For example a person belongs to low class family plus he is poor and plus he is discriminated too then all these differences like low class,poor,and discrimination overlap each other.
Crosscutting is when one of the social difference crosscuts another difference. For example a person belongs to low class but he is rich,because he is rich the society overlooks that he belongs to low class that means his being low class has been crosscut by he being rich.
I hope it helps u!
