Examples of 60s in a Sentence

  1. Christine Brennan:

    In the Michael Jordan-Tiger Woods era, we got used to athletes and coaches toeing the company line, playing it safe at every turn, but the election of Donald Trump has changed that, and Gregg Popovich is the leading example so far in the sports world. Athletes and coaches are finding their voice in a way that is reminiscent of the '60s. This makes sense because sports are no longer an escape from the real world but much more a mirror of our society. Because Trump is so controversial, it makes sense to me that people from all walks of life, including sports, are speaking out.

  4. Eli Steele:

    I think woke comes from a larger phenomenon of white guilt. America, in the mid-'60s … [admitted] that it partook of evil and it partook of evil for four centuries— wasn’t just a quick minute, one of the consequences is that the moral authority of the American democracy was put at risk because of this history of evil that came to the forefront in the '60s. Since that time, white America understandably has been trying to reestablish its moral authority, its moral legitimacy. In order to do that, it has to find ways to demonstrate that it is not guilty any longer of those old evils.

  5. Shelby Steele:

    I suppose looking back from today, it was a kind of golden age, almost. This was after the war post-50s, 60s. The government had no interest in socially engineering black Americans anywhere. We were pretty much left to our own devices within the boundaries of segregation. So we were limited in that regard, and yet within the community itself, there was an ethos of responsibility and a new possibility in a post-war community. And so the focus was on what we could do for ourselves, and we did many great things. On the street I grew up, a friend down at the end of the block, his name was Melvin Van Peebles — he invented independent filmmaking in America, in the world.
