16 year old gymnastic Gabby Douglas is the second African-American female in the USA to ever make the team. But instead of congratulating her achievements, some people are slamming her for not getting her hair done. SMH! Some critics insist that Douglas needs to properly represent the African-American community, and how her hair looks is part of that. What’s crazy is most of the negative comments about her hair are coming from other African-Americans.
“I find it sad that I have seen more Black women post criticizing comments about Gabby’s hair than I have comments of praise about her athleticism or adding color to USA Gymnastics since Dominique Dawes,” writes Monisha Randolph at SportyAfros.com“.
What do you think of all the criticism?
