Olympian Gabrielle Douglass Gold Medal A Hairy Issue: Critics Come From Most Likely Source Of Self Hate

The Native Virginia Beach teen literally shook up the world after winning the Woman’s Gymnastics All-Around Crown at the 2012 Summer Olympics, a feat never before accomplished by an American woman of color. She soured her way into the hearts of  Olympians and a vast global audience who cheered her on along the way. Her near effortless talent as a gymnast solidified her as the absolute best performer on the grandest stage in the world. Gabrielle Douglass did her Mom, Dad, and hometown proud with a performance almost certain to become remembered as the absolute best individual effort ever, by an African-American gymnast at the Olympics. As the Olympic Gold Medalist marched around 02 stadium in Britain draped with “Ole Glory”, another development reared its ugly head attempting to tarnish one of the greatest moments in World Sports history. Soon after Douglass took the podium to claim her Gold, comments began to emerge in social media which chastised the teen for what some would simply deem a bad hair day. Unsurprisingly though, many of the comments derived from other women of color who claim that “A Black Woman must represent her self in the best light at all times”, especially during an occasion such as this. Some women appear to have taken issue with the fashion in which Douglass wore her hair during her Olympic performances. The drama caught wind in the media from news affiliates whom are almost always eager to cast a negative light on the slightest accomplishments of famed Black-Americans. The comments came as a shock to many around the world, but in the African-American community here in the United States, such comments are only business as usual to many blacks who know the mindset of our community. American Blacks suffer from the disease of self-hatred that was indoctrinated into our people during the slave trade era. It’s not simply a matter of crabs in the barrel, but we continue to perpetuate a learned dislike for our own natural beauty. I’ll go on record right now by adding, if anyone can look at Gabrielle Douglass and conclude that she is, and was unattractive during her Olympic performances, then I suggest they run to the nearest Optometrist at their earliest convenience. Only a simple minded, envious nut case, and full of Haterade kind of person could find something negative to say about such a beautiful child. The kid riveted with an impassioned smile and displayed a unique candor with her body language unmatched by her Olympic peers. I am lost understanding why some black women did not see this. It’s just sad, even as Douglass’s popularity grew launching  her into the eventual crowd favorite, that some of her own people found it necessary to unleash childish, catty and little girl like comments about one of the most prolific athletes of our time. The comments depict exactly how sick some people of color really are. Once the comments were rebuffed by an appalled world fan base, many took the time to explain to bubble-head women who made comments, that athletes actual sweat, the perceived bad hair do was more than likely a clever idea by Douglass when considering the texture of African-American hair pertaining to its reaction to moisture. Her hair more than likely would have fallen flat anyway once she began her routines. However, this is dialogue for mature logical thinking people who’s lives are not predicated on what others perceptions are of them, or that of gossipy messy females who aspire to blend into a Euro-centric hair style culture. I mean what ass-holes they are. It’s incredible that in 2012 women of color in America remain such petty bitter bitches that the hair style of a teenage child has become such a distraction to them. It would be safe to say that the exact same women are probably major contributors to synthetic hair manufactures, all along while securing the prosperity of these same businesses, and insuring that they themselves remain in a state of mental slavery, oppression, and ignorance. What nerve they have. It’s with a distinct pleasure that The People’s Champion salute Ms. Gabrielle Douglass, her Mom, and her Dad on such an awesome accomplishment. Gabrielle Douglass, an American Olympian, and Gold Medalist. You did us all proud Gabby!
