Civil rights were formerly things like the right to life, liberty, and property

More recently things like the right not to be offended and the right to marry insects.

A movement during the 50s and 60s that involved the pursuance of equal treatment of blacks and whites in America. Blacks of the time period desired economic success and social acceptance among whites.

The irony is that these qualities are looked down upon by modern-day blacks, who view intelligence, wealth, success, and the ability to speak correct english as treason to their race. These very ideals that Dr. King and many others gave his life for are hated by modern-day blacks.
1960s Civil Rights Movement:

Black 1: I wish I could get a good education, get a good job, become successful, and be accepted by society.
Black 2: I hear you, man. It's what we all want and are fighting so hard for.

2000s:

Black 1: Fuck school, nigga. Who need edumucation anyway?
Black 2: Yeah, fuck wanting to get a job too. We ain't need no money. That a white thing, yo.
Black 3: Well, actually, I would like to become successful and become a productive member of society.
*silence*
Black 4: Drop dem Nikes before I blast ya, mothafucka!

Admission that the movement of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s was successful. An acceptance that the struggle for civil equality is over because what was granted has affected lasting, positive change.
Use of the phrase post-civil rights movement ignores the continual struggle for racial, gender, and educational advancement and equality because such a term conveys a belief that a civil rights movement has a start and end point. Marches end; movements do not.
