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...

As a youngster, I dreamed of being in gymnastic but was too afraid of either falling off the horse or hitting it...or even slipping. However, it is so beautiful to watch the gymnast fly through the air...so graceful. The flips too are amazing. Plus it keeps you so fit. I love the discipline. But!

A baby of Guyana, South America - the people around were mainly black and indians. My mother was one of the closest to whites I was familiar with - she is of mixed race [white and black]. I was called 'dougla' because I look like a child of an east indian and black mix. I knew I was black like most around, naturally.. I also knew that my features were always being questioned. I was told many stories if slaves and the strength of my race... and as long as i can remember - I loved being black...

Black Man Created All Other Races Posted: October 10, 2001 An analysis by Dr. Kwame Nantambu It is quite clear that any human that had its birth in Afrika could not have survived in an equatorial region without pigmentation. According to Senegalese scientist, deceased Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop (pronounced Jop), the world's modern-day multi-genius or Imhotep, since nature does not do anything by chance, then humankind that was born in a sub-equatorial region was given melanin to protect its skin...

Although, you did have this post... The vast majority of this post actually supports everything Uppity Negress has posted. But, there are still parts of this that are unsupportable. Such as... Anti-Nature??? I'm fairly certain that this is not a scientific term. How are pro-nature and anti-nature defined? Like this? I wouldn't neccessarily disagree with this charcterization of pro-nature and anti-nature (although I find it peculiar that xenophobia is on both lists). However, there are...
