The internet and social media networks have been buzzing over the last 8 hours with comments about Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas. Some comments were very positive and some were negative.
After scanning through some of the negative comments, we noticed that many were coming from African-American women criticizing Gabby’s hair.
Why would anyone especially African American women criticize the second female African- American U.S. gymnast to ever make the Olympic team, and the first African-American Olympic gymnast (male or female) to win gold in gymnastics’ biggest prize, the women’s all-around title?
