Gabby Douglas 2012 Gold Medalist Hair Controversy

Hello Everyone!

If you've been keeping up with the 2012 London Olympics, you watched team USA soar to a well earned Gold medal in Gymnastics; Russia in second, and Romania in third. You watched Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas give it their everything, for a title that they will be known for, for the rest of their gymnastics careers. Why is it that the focus has turned away from such an amazing opportunity, to the "unkempt" look of Gabby Douglas's hair?

As a natural 16 year old myself, these comments hit home. I find it ignorant and disgusting that people are so quick to tear Gabby away from her glory. I had no issues with her hair.  Yes it wasn't bone straight-but guess what? SHE'S BLACK. Stop putting her under labels- her hair is gorgeous the way it is. Gabby Douglas is not her hair.

And on another note- GABBY DOUGLAS AIN'T AT NO HAIR SHOW. While you're sitting there complaining about how you can't workout because of your "new perm" or you just got your nails 'did, she's 16 onto the Olympics- with hair that I know some of y'all would kill for. *drops mic*
