Well I will volley back to you. The biggest issue of the era was certainly race but there is a huge leap between referring to the era and race-baiting even if that is the case. Factually the era dealt with race, sexual liberation, women's' rights. privacy, search and seizure, freedom of speech, right to defense counsel, etc. Roe and Miranda are household names which come from that era. We're fighting more over Roe now than we are Brown v. Bd. of Education.
Seeing civil rights and racial issues is no stretch. Turning it into race baiting and jumping into the deep end of the martyr pool like GP did was definitely a stretch especially after it was explained.
