Quite frankly I haven't seen people drawing comparison to the civil rights movement in the way you claim.
You didn't read what he quoted? The guy you were arguing with didn't bring them up first, the person he was replying to was.
But again, jdryer didn't say it was just like civil rights issues of the 1960s, he drew a comparison to responses from then and now, and then everyone is now saying jdryer is saying it's just like civil rights in the 1960's which no one ever claimed.
"1960s: Those people that write about racial inequality should just shut up already. Constantly writing about it won't do anything."
Doesn't translate to, "I think this is exactly like the civil right movement of the 1960's." I think the idea was to point out how dismissive people can be of marginalized groups.
Edit: this is all kind of a derail, they've moved beyond it so I will shut up about it, :).This comment was edited on Jul 23, 2014, 21:47.
