They NEED to leave this YOUNG GIRL alone!!!!! And those in the public and celebrities and others should SPEAK UP for her...at least the black folks. Now, I did say earlier that it appears like she bleached her skin a little but....she;s only 22, Of course she is gon to experiment with fashions, looks to find her unique style. However, the haters haven't been letting up on her and I don't understand why. She is no different that Zandaya, or Zoe or any other black girls searching for their...

Why won't they admit that the reason Gabby Douglass has been vilified is because she spoke about the racism she experienced in the "gymnastics" world. To all her haters: Don't hate Gabby Douglass her because she can't fake it like a pro.

Gabby's pretty and Gabby's an Olympian Gymnast. Black people weren't included in gymnastics years ago. Any time you're black and you do anything better in the white world than the whites, there comes the jealousy, bitchiness, bullshit. I, who have worked with them, KNOW, as do all the rest who work with them. Black women picking on her hair, I don't know what their problem is. I remember when women wore their OWN hair and were pretty as pictures. I don't believe women wore WEAVES during the...

Now that makes MORE sense. I couldn't figure out why. I really did think it was a fashion thang and I didn't know she had said that. So....it's make sense why they are hating. And you're right sista Sunnubian....she is keeping it REAL by telling the truth. And they were sooooooo happy when Simone fell..that gave one of...

Something's wrong with "black" Negropean women, Momentum; they've been living in the Land of the Caucasoid Phonies too long. Want to look like White Women. Gabby's pretty and she's wearing her own hair; something Negropean women can't deal with anymore. They want the hair of THE DOG and wear it very well; just look like Trannies is all. More sexual confusion eye marshmallows (no more candy). Can't tell what the hell sex they're really sporting, all you can do is guess. I'm thinking lots of...
