When presented with the statement "I have one or more friends who are of a different race than me," here are the percentages of respondents who agreed, by generation:
• 81% Gen Z
• 69% Millennials
• 67% Gen X
• 71% Baby Boomers
As far as dating people of a different race, 35% of Gen Zers (who are age 19 at most) said they have; that's more than any other generation than millennials, 43% of whom said they have.
This may be because Gen Z is the most racially diverse generation in America. The Census Bureau found that 48% of Gen Z is non-Caucasian. The next most-diverse generation is the millennials, 44% of whom are non-Caucasian.
Members of Gen Z are also the most likely to say they have friends of a different sexual orientation (59%, versus 53% of millennials and smaller percentages of the older generations).
