I personally feel that it is indeed a CRYING SHAME that people around the world…near and far could not “tame their rude and racial” comments towards this LITTLE GIRL.
It is amazing how she is only 16, she is the youngest to win gold, the first african american to win gold, the first black to win gold, the youngest olympian winning gold – and people STILL found something negative to talk about!
While people are talking about Gabby’s hair…her and her mother is cashing in on checks, tv appearances, marketing deals, making history, publicity for all of her FUTURE projects, taking photos to be featured on Kellogg’s and Wheaties boxes, being happy, sponsorships, free college scholarships and being nationally known for something POSITIVE!
Either the world is genuinely getting worse and they are that rude and evil IN SPITE of the positivity that they see and hear or it is indeed because she is black. PICK ONE ALREADY!
A big kuddos to her family for supporting her dreams at a very early age and being there for her in spite of what it took to achieve her dreams! For two years, her mother allowed her to live in another state so that she could have a better opportunity to be in London and it paid off!
Nonetheless, whether she is black, poke a dot, indian, asian, red, yellow, green or blue…NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY what she earned truly in front of the WORLD!
