It is kapton tape and is there as an insulator for the exposed electronics. If you remove it you will need to replace it with the black tape on the original glass or the digitizer and home button will not function properly when you put it back together.

leave the kapton tape alone, as Brian suggests.

I can see that your replacement digitizer already has the black adhesive sticker pre-installed. After testing, when you're ready to do your final seal, pull the plastic covering off your black adhesive sticker all the way around your screen. Don't forget to pull the plastic off the inside of the digitizer as well. Seal your new screen, then gently heat the edges of the mini to activate the adhesive and create a stronger bond.
