Globally, there should be no place in society for discrimination and a lack of tolerance for diversity, but it is allowed to rear its ugly head because too few people are prepared to challenge the verbal and physical bullying, which is the form in which lack of tolerance manifests itself. From bigoted talk in a private or a public forum, it needs to be strongly challenged. Time for people to show they will not support discrimination. Pro-Tolerance™ is a trademark solely owned by Varsity Anagram LLC, developed to do that, appearing on wristbands that are available to show you support, and have the courage to openly declare that you support, fair and equal treatment of each and every individual without any discrimination, regardless of how they might be different to you in any way, including, but not limited to:
Therefore, being Pro-Tolerance™ means, for example, that you do not support bullying, racial profiling, hate-mongering, etc. It is a simple concept that does not require you to do anything other than consider how your words and actions might affect the lives, feelings and general wellbeing of others around you and to reasonably promote those same standards of consideration for individuals and groups of people amongst your friends and colleagues.
Does being Pro Tolerance limit your right to free speech? No, it does not. Everyone is entitled to state their opinions but it is the careless use of that right which many people need to consider curbing. It is too easy to say something in public without realizing that there are a great many gullible listeners who are easily swayed by idle rhetoric and will act in a harmful and discriminatory way based on bully pulpit words. When in doubt as to whether or not your words will incite an unhealthy mass reaction, please consider staying silent or at least qualifying the intent of your meaning.
The concept of this design uses a color swirl that blends base skin tones so this wristband reflects a world that is hopefully on its way to positive unification. The color fill uses teal because teal traditionally denotes life, emotional healing and trustworthiness. Just as no two individuals are the same, every one of these wristbands is different from all others since the swirl pattern is randomly created during manufacture. The alternative name for this wristband is CAMO, not just because the pattern is reminiscent of typical camo patterns, but because CAMO could easily be interpreted to represent the Caucasian/African/Mexican/Oriental primary ethnic origins in this country.
This wristband uses a coffee color to reflect that the world is a melting pot of ethnicities which should all be treated equally. With its simple debossed message this wristband is a more subdued way of stating the wearer's support of a Pro-Tolerance attitude.
The Pro-Tolerance™ wristbands are available in the two Standard designs shown here or can be made Custom with the addition of lettering on the outside of the wristband, opposite the slogan. That custom lettering can be used for the name of an association, school or college, activist organization, in memoriam of a victim, or in any other way tied in to Pro-Tolerance™.
