Olympic Medalist Gabby Douglas Responds to Hair Critic’s” Are you Kidding, I just made History”

ImageOver the weekend A host of Media outlets and interviewers Got to catch up with Gabby and asked her how she felt about people who criticized her about her hair. I must say this is really typical in the African American Race especially when it comes to “Our” women!..Its very disturbing and embarrassing to say the least that the talk amongst many was not how this 16year old African American woman beat the odds against all the obstacles she was faced with and made history, but about how she could have done her hair differently. And further more it showed how ignorant people can be, anyone with any logic knows that being an athlete you sweat  so its not uncommon to wear your hair in a pony tail and a bun and its a must to keep it out of your face!…This is what Gabby had to say”

What’s wrong with my hair? I just simply gelled it back, put some clips it and put it in a bun.Are you kidding me? I just made history? And you’re focusing on my hair? I just want to say we’re all beautiful inside out. Nothing is going to change.”I don’t think people should be worried about that. We’re all champions and we’re all winners. I just say that it’s kind of, a stupid and crazy thought to think about my hair.’

#Tellem Gabby!
