Identification on accompanying material (typed): The Tattooed Man of course is Uncle Sam (the U.S. of A.). The tattoos are events and symbols indelibly pressed on the conscience of all the Americans so that even when or if these ills are remedied, the stigma, the history cannot be removed; stamped there as much by apathy as by atrocity. The children are the little girls killed in Birmingham; Nacirema (American spelled backwards) on the raised forearm of Uncle Sam is the name of the bomber society in the South.
