Like the rest of America, I was overwhelmed with excitement about the achievements of the great Gabby Douglas. Douglas has set the world on fire, and broken records in the process. I was especially inspired after finding out about the sacrifices Gabby’s mother made in order for her to be successful. As the first black woman to secure the all-around gold medal in Olympic gymnastics, she has inspired people around the world for generations to come.
That’s when the small-minded haters come in.
The latest conversation tearing up the Twitterverse is the talk about Gabby’s hair. Some women are taking issue with Gabby’s pony tail, pins and gel needed to hold her hair together during stressful performances. I guess being the greatest gymnast on earth doesn’t mean anything if “yo weave ain’t tight” in the process.
