I’m okay with no racial majority

The thing lots of people miss with whites losing the majority is that no one race will be in the majority. We’ll all be minorities, which will ultimately remove a source of resentment and conflict. I’m white, I live in Silicon Valley. I doubt whites are the majority here anymore. But neither is anyone else. Some of the “minorities” have been in the US longer than my family, so how can I say they are less American than I am?
