In the U.S., the young generation, Gen Z, is only 50% white, and is now 26% Hispanic, 14% black, and 5% Asian, according to the 2018 U.S. Census.

Things are changing so fast, and our racial and lifestyle and religious make-ups are shifting, generation to generation.
There’s no question that the Black Lives Matter movement is attempting to provide an intervention to both white people and Black people in America.
