A historical look at the "get over it" mentality might be useful. Imagine in 1872 if, after Susan B. Anthony's arrest for voting, she was told, "Get over it! A woman's place is in the home." If she had listened we might not have the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Imagine if Rosa Parks had acquiesced to the racism of her time. "You're lucky you're even allowed on the bus. Give up your seat, and get over it." And in 1963 nobody dared say, "Sure Dr. King, we all have dreams, just as long as you know your place. Get over it, and don't be so uppity!" This country has grown and thrived to be the great nation it is because people of good courage and conscience don't get over injustice and bigotry. They fight it, calling it for what it is.
