Whenever I get into an argument about race with a white person, at some point or other they say: "it was over 200 years ago, get over it" or something along these lines. This makes me facepalm to the extremes and I'm tired of it.
Obviously slavery happened a long time ago but that doesn't mean people should get over it, it should be remembered so that humanity can learn from it's mistakes. Would you tell a white person to get over WW2? Of course not, that is really direspectful. Sure, this was almost 100 years ago but the pain is still being felt to this day, same with slavery. Before you lose your shit, I'm not one of those people who plays the "slavery card" just to prove a point, in fact it's not even me who brings up slavery when I argue with white people. I just think you should realise how disrespectful you are being when you say "get over slavery". And no, I'm not reinforcing the politically correct agenda, I don't have an opinion on this subject. I just want to inform you of the consequences of saying "get over it". Those consequences being: you sounding like a complete and utter fool, you sounding like more of a racist (if you're trying to prove that you're not), possibly getting punched in the face (which you bloody well deserve, in my opinion), and many more...
If you're going to leave an opinion and you're just too far up your ignorant, racist ass to tolerate other opinion then I'm not even going to bother debating with your bigoted self.

The amount of people I've seen saying 'oh, just get over it' is ridiculous.5
