Inspired by a poem by Shel Silverstein, Palmer paints a child’s skin as "sort of brownish-pinkish-yellowish white." The poem goes on to explain, "All the colors I am inside have not been invented yet." God’s children are duty bound to emulate Christ and His ability to judge those around Him by their internal worth and not their external appearance.

"He knows the names of all the colors inside of each person that have not been invented yet."
