There is hope for our species. Generation Z knows what needs to be done.

What do Generation Z people stand for? What are their values?

One of the core char­ac­ter­is­tics of Gen­er­a­tion Z is racial diver­si­ty. As America’s demo­graph­ics con­tin­ue to shift, Gen Z will be the last gen­er­a­tion that is pre­dom­i­nant­ly white. A slight major­i­ty of Gen Z-ers (52%) is white; 25% is His­pan­ic, 14% is Black and 4% is Asian.

For many Gen Z-ers, the back­drop of their ear­ly years includ­ed the country’s first Black pres­i­dent and the legal­iza­tion of gay mar­riage. They are more like­ly to have grown up amid diverse fam­i­ly struc­tures — whether in a sin­gle par­ent house­hold, a mul­ti-racial house­hold, or a house­hold in which gen­der roles were blurred. As a result, they are less fazed than pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions by dif­fer­ences in race, sex­u­al ori­en­ta­tion or religion.

They are our first ?“dig­i­tal natives”

Anoth­er char­ac­ter­is­tic of Gen­er­a­tion Z is their native use of tech­nol­o­gy. Where­as Mil­len­ni­als were con­sid­ered ?“dig­i­tal pio­neers,” who bore wit­ness to the explo­sion of tech­nol­o­gy and social media, Gen Z was born into a world of peak tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tion — where infor­ma­tion was imme­di­ate­ly acces­si­ble and social media increas­ing­ly ubiquitous.

 It's good we die because as it is change is difficult as we age.  I am 93.  What your message laid out is primarily what my father was saying when he was an old man.  Dad was a Catholic and Mom a Presbyterian.  You would have thought the world caved in the way the families behaved.  Not only that but my fathers background was Italian-English.  Dads parents were divorced and that was rare back in the 20s-30s.  

Mom was a Ku Kluxer as was her whole family in New Jersey. Dad and Brother and me discovered it when the family house was sold and the attic cleaned out.  Down floasted the white gown and hood.  Dad and us kids yelled:  'WHAT'S THAT?'  Mom stood there in the yard with her face in her hands.  

Moving on with MY family:  My son married a Catholic Puerto Rican-German girl.  One of my grandaughers married a Dominican-Catholic and they are raising their 2 daughters Catholic.  

My Dad wouldn't have been shocked.  My Mom?  She still referred to Chinese as Chinks.  She still hated Blacks 'til the day she died at 102.  Oh the stories  I could tell.

I first read about Generation Z in a statement by a guy in Mongolia over at Quora. He saw big change and one change was that Generation Z supports personality. Protestors now clean up the litter they leave after the protests are over.
