Comment on The Student Paradox by jmm12

When one thinks of the 60s, they often assume that all college age students were “hippies” and place them into category that incorrectly generalizes what most college students were like during the time. While the “hippies” and student protesters did make waves in the media and around the country, a solid portion of the college students were not like that. As you mention in your analysis, not all student protesters were fighting for causes that we often think of students protesters fighting for. It is perceived that college students protested Vietnam or rights for homosexuals, but often they were fighting for the opposite views as well. You covered some important points in you post with some good analysis. Nice work
