Culture Plays Major Role in Hispanic Gen Z’s Lives. Not So for White NH Gen Z

A new Quant-Qual study by Santiago Solutions Group, titled “Gen Z: Hispanics vs. White Non-Hispanics on Aspirations, Stress, Family and the Influence of Culture”, revealed that the most substantial difference between Hispanic Gen Z and White Non-Hispanic (WNH) Gen Z was the manifestation and importance of culture (or lack thereof) in Gen Zers’ lives. Hispanic Gen Zers are as deeply American as their White non-Hispanic peers. Nevertheless, even those living in emerging areas of the country and third generation homes, feel a greater attachment towards Hispanic culture.

Despite the fact that a large majority of Hispanics are aware of stereotypes or have felt they were treated differently based on their ethnicity; Hispanics Gen Z are very proud of sharing their Latin culture. In addition, Hispanics Gen Z feel Latin culture has shaped who they are and made them unique. Along with Latin food, traditions and rituals, Hispanic Gen Zers associate Latin culture with a strong value system from their families which motivates them to set very high aspirations and work at all cost and sacrifices to attain their dreams. Hispanics Gen Z feel that their cultural duality as well as growing up with fairly conservative families have made them more open-minded than the typical American Gen Zer.

Although, White Non-Hispanics Gen Z also embrace their European heritage; their American culture is less defined and not as influential in their lives. In fact, the study found that White Non-Hispanics were excited and greatly influenced by other non-American cultures, primarily Latino Culture; they act as cultural sponges, absorbing the culture of their friends and community.
