    I've been saying this for years so it's fun to hear it put so "well" as Hunter does it.
    We are already a majority minority country. I haven't ever been able to find any census figures along these lines but it seems obvious if we only count English, Scots, Scots-Irish, Welsh, Quakers, and other groups who were here in 1776, (white-only, of course) that those groups are nowhere near a majority. What happens if we include the Dutch (they did have 2 presidents after all), the Germans, and maybe some other groups, like the Swedes and Finns? I'm not sure those groups should be in, but what the heck.
