      the largest political party in Scotland. While they're nationalist, they also elected the very first non white and non christian member of the Scottish Parliament, Bashir Ahmad. Humza Yousaf and a bunch of others make up the Asian Scots for Independence, and the SNP coined the term "New Scots" to refer to immigrants.

      It's a very unique strain of pro-immigrant nationalism that could really only exist in an ideologically peculiar place like Scotland.
