Dante Atkins's distinction between joining a protest and sustained activism is an important one, and he is correct to note that challenges to equality have been creeping up on California for years.

That said, the accusatory tone of his open letter to UC students seems not only unnecessary but also bizarre. "Where were you when...?" just doesn't make sense if we're talking about college students and long-term policy trends. Where were they? I'm guessing junior high.

And then there's this dig:
take a minute to stop downloading whatever it is you're downloading (hey, I don't judge) and help us organize

Those crazy kids! All they do these days is download things! Get offa my lawn!
