If you start to think about it, in some places there are and always have been more minorities than "majorities." That certainly may enter into the way things have worked out over the last, oh, 200 years. A minority is not necessarily a group of people of which there are fewer than there are of other groups. But time marches on and in some places today in this country, everyone is in the minority. But some groups tend to run things anyway, mostly to suit themselves. In fact, I'd even say some groups are barely aware of the existance of any other group, or at least they act like it.
It is also unfortunate when there is a public reaction to crime rates that may not be the same reaction you have yourself.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
