    We are all tattooed, yet we have no marks on our bodies.
    No green, no blue, no red.
    Once, my granddad said that this feature would alter my entire life.
    How can you remove something as significant as that?
    The fact is, we were all born black.
    This is our tattoo.
    When you really think it through,
    It seems as if we were all born with a burden. What you have to do in order to see the truth is open your eyes.
    You’ll find that what lies behind the curtain of your eyes is a lesson.
    Throughout your life you will begin to realize that this burden is a blessing.
    And as you go through life there will come a time when you will know.
    You will understand the internal inferno which breathes inside you.
    It is the pride of our people, which is, and always will be,
    Eternal​
