Tolerance Through Intolerance

Sometimes the best way to understand the meaning of a word is to look at the opposite of it and the many opposing terms that may go along with it.  In this video clip from Characters Unite, we are able to see the specific things that certain people will not “stand for”. Not only do they mention intolerance, but they also mention words such as racism and prejudice. Although no one in this film mentions the word “tolerance” , you are able to see that tolerance is everything that is the exact opposite of what is presented in this film.

Tolerance is NOT:

  • racism
  • prejudice
  • discrimination
  • hate

Tolerance IS:

  • love
  • acceptance
  • equality
  • paitence
  • open – mindedness

  1. I like the list at the end….very clear definitions. Now, you could work on tolerance in law….maybe even as part of your capstone?
