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.
I agree Cassie. But unfortunately hair represents so much more than dead cells for so many black women women and they take it out on others. She is a 16 year old girl having the time of her life. She is a positive role model and she is obviously supported by a great family. But some black women don't see it that way. They see her appearance and think since she is not all done up in the way they think appropriate, she failed at being a black woman. That could not be further from the truth. She's herself and her hair while representing the outer cannot take away from what her mother built as a strong inner self.
Gabby and her hair are cute, and I am proud of her! What matters is her character, her hard work, and her success. She is a fine young role model for other girls who want to be winners at what they choose to do with their lives.
