A growing number of America's Black youth are questioning longstanding loyalties to the Democratic Party.
It's a stance that reflects a broader willingness to scrutinize the status quo among members of Gen Z, the segment of the U.S. population born from the mid-1990s to the mid-2010s that's quickly becoming a generation of activists. Its members have joined nationwide demonstrations over racial injustice, the debilitating economic and public health fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.
Among other things, they're asking why conditions in communities led by Democratic officials aren't improving, according to a report in Politico. That question, admittedly, sets them apart from the mainstream of Gen Z, reportedly more liberal than any previous group.

The articles are saying different things than the polls.
The Democrats are the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, etc. Keeping minorities as a poor underclass is still the goal of their policies to keep them under their thumb. Why be loyal to that party?
GenZ grew up getting their “information” from the internet, not cable tv and the alphabet soup media.
This makes them very diverse and unpredictable in opinion because it really depends on information streams they regularly consume.
The Democrat party is good only for the blacks in power, or in some way connected to them. These people become wealthy beyond imagination. Study any nation controlled by blacks (where the people live in abject poverty while leaders live in castles) and see the same phenomena.
When I ran for office, experienced old timers advised me to seek out black preachers, and bring sacks of money with me. The preachers have tremendous influence in the black community, and if you can bring enough money to buy a few of them you can count on a high percentage of the black vote.
It only took 60+ years to notice the Democrats were not helping them...
When you support a political party that promises you the Moon for 60+ years and your life never gets better, it starts to dawn on you.
If you have a political party that depends on the poor and downtrodden, that party will make damn sure they NEVER RUN OUT OF POOR AND DOWNTRODDEN......................
What was it LBJ said about their vote way back when?
But, unfortunately, Zoomers have been subjected to distorted history classes.
Kim Klalick’s ads have been very effective. Even if she doesn’t win, she has planted ideas for next time.
It is. At this time, I do believe that Trump will get a % of minority men bigger from last time, but that remains to be seen.
To Americans who happen to be black:
GET OFF THE DEMO-RAT PLANTATION!
It has long been the case that whoever is the president when young voters are roughly entering college tends to impact their political philosophy in a way that stays with them as a cohort.
We have had almost four years of Trump influence after eight years of Barry.
True, but many have also fact checked their teachers with their phone.
Zoomers (or the Jordan Petersen generation) are more conservative than millennials.
Most of the arrested rioters are over 25. The largest number of them are friggin teachers! The antifa commie pukes are mostly millennials, with just a smattering of zoomer twerps.
I hope you are right.
Petersen says Nazis were right wingers. That turned me off to him.
Nazis were Left, Nazis and Communists were rabid dogs fighting each other over the same bone.
Yup. Petersen thinks other wise.
His actual answer is more nuanced than that.
Telling young people to clean up their own damn rooms before they try to tell others how the world should be run is golden in my book.
