I am running out of ideas.

Question: Did the climate of civil rights and related protest become so militant after 1965 that it was counterproductive, splintering support for civil rights causes and providing an opening for conservative opposition?

We have talked about the civil rights movement, women's movement, gay liberation movement, chicano movement, and the student movement.

    This climate was not counterproductive, although conservatives did oppose the Civil Rights movement.

    I live in a mid-size Michigan city and overheard a conversation between the owner of a local store and a friend. The owner was moaning that if she hired a black, that she would lose a lot of customers who were mostly white. Of course, she was forced to hire blacks -- and guess what? She did not lose customers!
