This is another graphic exploration featuring The Mamey (Which is a fruit that is very common in Cuba, and Latin America in general) I identify myself with this tropical fruit. To me it describes any latin american person that has left their country of birth behind to come to the USA. It has a very rough brown peel, rather hard; a sweet vibrant red interior meat; and an even tougher, shiny black seed.
