Why is Gabby Douglas's hair such a big deal for black women?

She won two Olympic Gold medals and yet there's this social media ruckus among black women about her hair. Leave her alone. She's sweet and cute and fine the way she is. In fact Team USA women gymnastics had the natural look compared to Russia's team with the glitter in the hair and the 80s blue eye shadow.

    Thanks for your answer Alecia. I think Gabby is also ignoring these silly remarks, so she's sensible as well as talented. Aly's hair wasn't that great either so I couldn't understand why they were picking on Gabby.
