Dept. of Small Minorities (really small ones)

I wanna be a minority

Have you heard about the Cornish? They're a ethnic minority in Great Britain.

There is a history of some people in Cornwall that are upset that their children won't be counted as a minority at school. They claim racial discrimination because these kids speaks Cornish and do want to be seen as Cornish rather than English. Authorities say that it wouldn't be healthy for them to see themselves as a minority.

In my book there's much more unhealthy to have this kind of parents. In Sweden I think it's time to claim the Skåningar to be a ethnic minority - noone understands what they say.
