I agree with this. If the story needs to contain a rigid class system of some kind, maybe make it about something like tail length or shape, or about teeth, or noses, or maybe just make it be about some groups having more control over resources, and a class structure evolving socially from this (like in medieval Europe, the nobles owned land and the serfs were the means of production on said land, and social status was largely hereditary).
I see your point. That's definitely something to think about.
Maybe stripes? Or pointed ears? Maybe I could just do it by tribe. They don't like tribe X because of reasons.
And I could drop it down to just one group that suffers discrimination.
Removing color from the equation is the way to go.
