Civil rights has hardly been any sort of an issue in this election.  In particular, it is not an issue in the Republican primaries because there are so few minorities that ever vote in the GOP primaries.  Perhaps you could go to his campaign website to find more.

What particular issue within Civil rights are you thinking of? Perhaps that might help us to give you a more structured response to this question. As #2 indicates, there has not been much talk on Civil rights, so you might need to think of another issue that has received more press time.

I think you might consider the rights of homosexuals here.  Romney has certainly not been a supporter of same sex marriage or equal rights under the law for these individuals.  It would be political suicide for any Republican to come out in favor of gay rights.

I do not know to what degree this has an impact on Romney's position on civil rights for African-Americans, but the Mormon Church did not allow African-Americans to become members of the church until 1978.  Similarly, equal rights for women are still not a credo of the church, to the best of my knowledge.  Of course, this is true of other religions as well, and one can only hope that a president can separate religious precepts from civic responsibility to all.
