There must be something that you can reproach me for.

At a time when certain political discourses are attempting to legitimise stigmatisation, we would do well to remember the historical precedents to this and find a way to act against it, in all its forms. The Nazis, in their obsession with categorisation, pushed the logic of discrimination to the creation of a set of symbols that have come to represent one of the darkest periods in human history. There was, of course, the yellow star, but there was also the brown triangle that identified gypsies who would be sent to camps. The blue triangle served the same function for emigrants. The red identified their political opponents, the pink, homosexuals and the green, common criminals. Finally, for all the other people that the Nazis were incapable of identifying, there was the black triangle, which designated an assorted bunch, including the long-term unemployed, alcoholics, aristocrats, pacifists, vagrants, drug addicts, prostitutes or lesbians.
 
So, if you have foreign ancestry, you have once had a few too many drinks, you have visited prostitutes, you have shown atypical sexual or political inclinations or you forgot to denounce your neighbour…It’s time to step forward and show your white triangle badge: the Liberty Symbol. Because if we pay heed to the discourses that seek to separate us, the fear of others will continue to triumph over the idea that we all have something we could be reproached for.

Made in high quality enamel, Liberty symbols are sold in quantities of 2 (because if I am, one of my friends certainly is too), for the sum of 5€, postage and packaging included for Europe.
