Mini-Quiz: When Cops Were Pigs (1968)

by Ron Kurtus (3 December 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why did the Yippies protest at the Democratic Convention?

They wanted Lyndon Johnson to stay on as President

They were ridiculing the establishment and protested the war

They were infiltrated by Republicans who wanted Nixon to win

2. Why did Mayor Daley get rough with the protesters?

He felt they were disgracing the image of his city

He hated young men who had long hair

He was angry that his son was one of the protesters

3. Why did Rubin and Hoffman get into business?

They were anti-establishment, but not too much to avoid making good money

The whole idea of the protests was to get them into some business ventures

Executives wanted these brilliant young men to join their companies

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in History. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Some expressions are plain stupid
