QY23: Allowed to sleep over at a friend’s house? BASE: All respondents 1,220 25-49 Parents of 8-12 aged kids + 1,198 13-17s

The Cultural Evolution: What’s Kept, What’s Tossed and What’s Being Added Today, more than two-thirds of Hispanic and Non- Hispanic Black Gen Z teens and parents say they keep most of their historic cultural values. They also take cues from modern American society,
as they choose which values to keep, reject and add in. These are all nuances that marketers must understand, as they also impact brand relationships and purchase decisions.
According to HMC’s study, IT’S TIME: Ready (or Not) for the Multicultural Majority, Hispanics (and non- Hispanic Blacks), say family culture “keeps you safe, sane and happy” and keeps cultural knowledge and traditions alive. Hispanics, but not non-Hispanic Blacks, also value family interdependence (we versus me) as a core part of cultural identity. Both Hispanics and non-Hispanic Blacks place a high level of importance on the practice of respect, including respect for their elders and stronger parental authority, including discipline within the parent/ child relationship. Culturally, Hispanic “respeto”
is more complex and formal than what is typically expected in the U.S—with an emphasis on courtesy, including helping above and beyond when you are a guest in someone’s house or how you behave with authority figures, such as your doctor or an elder.
In 2020, likely a result of COVID-19 highlighting the pervasiveness of racism and inequality, fairness, justice and empathy are driving values for people in the U.S., according to Kantar US Monitor 2020.
