As a conservative estimate, I'd say there are probably going to be 219,402,392,302 think-pieces written about this upcoming phenomenon. Here's why you should take it all with a grain of salt.*In the official census count, "Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan" are also counted as white. This proves that race is a totally made-up thing and that somebody at the Census Bureau is hitting the sauce hard during work hours.
