Boolean value?

It says "Bummer! Did you include the boolean expression to evaluate?" and I don't know what boolean value it is talking about.

int value = -1;
string textColor = null;

     return (value < 0) ? textColor = "red" : textColor = "green";

Assign the result of the tenary if statment to textColor

textColor = (value < 0)  ? "red" : "green";
