What was the major social issue back in the 1960s? Was it the rebellion against government - the hippie movement? Am I right or not? And if I'm not, then what was the major social issue in the 1960s?
Please don't direct me to any websites, I'd like a straightforward answer.

You've answered your own question -- or else you didn't phrase the question as you had intended.

So, you're saying the hippie movement was the biggest social issue in the 1960s? Yes? No?

No. The Civil Rights movement was the primary social issue of the 60's. The Hippies were only a part of that movement.

By the end of the decade, ending the Viet Nam war also became a major issue dividing America. So-called hippies were a part of that movement. Major civil rights legislation had been enacted by the end of the decade, with wide support.
