Gabrielle Douglas, who won 2 gold medals in the 2012 Summer Olympics, covers today's Washington Post. The 16-year-old, who is nicknamed "the flying squirrel," wowed the crowds with her incredible athletic prowess.

In any other culture such amazing achievements would be a source of pride. But in the black community, there is a raging debate on the style and texture of Gabby's hair -- and the media is lapping it up. As a race we are already scraping rock bottom in America, but who ever thought we could go even lower?

The debate erupted on social networking websites such as Twitter.com, where the majority of the criticism comes from black women who spend more money annually on fake hair, sew-ins, and hair gel than any other race.

"Have we forgotten that Gabby is competing at Olympics XXX? This is not America's Next Top Model that we're watching," wrote a Twitter user.

Monisha Randolph, who runs Sporty Afros blog, notes that our reliance on weave and hair extensions limits our involvement in sports and vigorous exercise, which leads to increased obesity rates among black women.

"A large number of Black women do not work out because of their beloved hairstyle. This is so sad and this is why Sporty Afros was created. We are here to help women with their workout hair care solutions and crush excuses such as 'I can't workout because of my hair.'"

      she is a beautiful age appropriate young lady and her hair is fine. I could see the uproar over the Williams Sisteres when they were wearing the braids and beads but Gabby's hair is just coarse around the edges i'm sure from the amount of sweat she produces

      I think people are making way to much of this. Just because you joke about someone doesn't mean you don't respect their accomplishments. Turning it into a serious issue is the ridiculous part of this whole thing. And Sandra, when did you stop wearing weave? You're all high and mighty right about now. Did you stop getting the creamy crack too?

      Twitter is full of ignorance, but that shouldn't have made the news. She's making history and ppl are concerned about what ppl are saying about her hair.

      The media was upset that their BELOVED Jordyn didn't place high enough, and now they found something to try and overshadow this black girls success.

    • SamIAMnotHAM

      We have been groomed and taught to hate ourselves for hundreds of years. We have been taught that we have to assimilate into the "worlds" mainstream view of what beauty is and only 1% of these images are people of ANY color.

      Someone compared the logic of thier hateful thinking to talking about the looks of SCRIPTED reality show personalities and how we dissect their appearance, however this is a 16 year old CHILD who REALITY is being a olympic gold medalist. Comparing her to Fantasia, Evelyn or any other ADULT personality is like comparing a rock to a mountain.

      Some of these negative posters were laying on their backs at sixteen so I would take their comments about her hair with a grain of salt.

      Its time to reprogam ourselves....

      I would love to see half of these people at 16 doing chit with their lives and being ratchet but yet concerned about hair?! When will we ever get right? Oh not to mention having jokes on hair is just as bad as being apart of the problem :yes:

    • TPtotalpackage

      I am so sick of self-hating, pressed, opressed, ain't used to sh*t ,ain't never had sh*t a** knee grows. You're worried about her hair when you need to be asking your mammy why she never exposed you to anything. Find out why your pappy neve
      r took you to the park let alone an extraciricular activity. . Gabby has a Gold medal and you don't even have a verified check to validate your "twitter" opinion.

      My thing is why would the subject about hair even come up when she is winning medals, some black women are haters and really need to STFU, to busy being inspired by video models, and Nikki manaj. The crap is embarrassing, and whomever said anything about her hair should do the walk of shame :cuss: Get yo life !

      Hair has always been significant in the Black community but this right here is sad.

      I hate weaves though :yes: Stop looking like Pocahontas and start loving your Afican side

    • Gigi26

      Her routines were sick last night :yes:

      sometimes we focus on the wrong damn things :no: I'm not gonna lie the first time I saw her I said "damn" but not enough to constantly tweet about it. It was not that serious. People making youtube videos and shyt about this defeats the whole purpose. Ignore and it'll go away eventually.

      Anywhoo, I loved when Gabby said when she was interviewed how all the glory goes to him and the blessings fall on me or something like that. That child ain't ashamed of the Lord, made me almost cry! Bless her heart.

      She's going to be on the box of Kellogg's corn flakes :yes: BALLING!! LOL

    • buddapecan

      I dnt blame Black ignorance for this, I blame the White media for picking it up. I was shocked when I saw this on yahoo news yesterday. The natural vs texture debate is ours...They could never understand. Did I think the comments about her hair were ignorant? Well yeah...Venus and Serena endured the same thing...However...Theyre in the public eye so :shrugs: Yall will say Gabby is imune, but stay sippin from *******'s Teet monitoring and critiquing her every move...Yeah ok...Anyway...Hey Bibi gurl...Meeeeow.

    • LuvMySailor

      The "nappy/good" hair debate and by extension the "dark/ligh" debate will never go away in the Black community as long as you have folk who adhere to the ignorance. Whenever I see a debate raging I take it as a personal challenge to fight the ignorance with knowledge, but some people are too complacent to embrace the knowledge

    • kingstonn

      if she had on 15 pounds of weave, i doubt she'd be able to fly across the mat like so. this whole subject is so petty... i wanna see what the hair of some of those people who were tweeting about her looks like.

    • 4theluvof_mii

      Our people are so azz backwards, that's why we are far behind. To be honest no one, not even mii, has ever heard of Gabby until the games and to talk about her hair and not her accomplishments is just CRAZY!!! We are so hype over these foolish, fake, lame azz reality shows that show our people as crazy and derranged with a bunch of issues.. I'm ova this shyt... GO GABBY show them how a real, respectful, well-spoken young lady get tge job done.

      Why can't it be like that for us? Why can't we as whole be happy for that girl? I know I shed a tear when I saw how proud her family was. I'm very happy for Gabby!

      But most of us had no idea that it was trending. And like I said ppl on internet say the dumbest ish. The media chooses what to focus on. If ppl were talking about Phelps big ass ears, I guarantee the news wouldn't mentioned it.

      Im not excusing the ignant folks (both black and white) that were talking about her hair, but Im upset that the media even mentioned it.

And if anyone had something slick to say, I would love to challenge them to a run, push ups, sit ups, etc...

      I honestly feel like they needed something negative to point out.

      But you're right, sometimes we give the media all they need to create a story showing us in a bad light. smh

      I am so ashamed yet again...."WE" always show our insecurities in front of company....I shed tears last night at the sacrifice and the maturity of this young child. :wtf:

      TO move to Iowa with a host family and be away from her family. I couldn't imagine sending my child half way across the country...to train. ONLY to have people talk about her damn hair. HAVING grown up a darker hued black female it has taken years to people back the insecurities dished to me by "MY" people of being cute for a "black girl." CRABS in a BARREL will we ever be proud that one of the crabs got out????" :ashamed:

      This is ridiculous and we are buying into it hook line and sinker despite the fact that we go in on people on a daily basis all day every day on this very site, including athletes. Sandra herself has used the issue to go in on people with weaves, lacefronts and perms. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone oncetagain.

      Anywho, I'm proud of Gabby, not as a black girl, but as an American. During the Olympics I really don't get into the race thing.

      I never post much anymore but I have to say that I'm so proud of Gabby. She is such a beautiful, god fearing, determined, and respectful young lady and on top of that she's an amazing athlete! I normally don't feel that celebrities should be role models but I would love for my two daughters to look up to her as they grow.

      As for this story. I'm glad it became an issue because its opened up dialogue. Stuff on twitter always makes it to mainstream if it involves race. This is no different from the white racists who were coming for the little Black girl that played Rue in the Hunger Games.

      No, no, no ... not from swimming, but from Gainesville. The former Florida Gator has decided it's time to move out of his college town.

      "Being in a college town for so long, it does get old," Lochte said.

      He's got tons of support in Gainesville... But it's apparently not enough to keep him in "Gator Country."

      "I'm getting older and I think it's time for me to move on," Lochte said, adding that he still wants to do some training in Gainesville "but I definitely want to move somewhere else and probably start a new life."

      Little girl with the press and curl
      Age eight I got a Jheri curl
      Thirteen I got a relaxer
      I was a source of so much laughter
      Fifteen when it all broke off
      Eighteen and I went all natural
      February two thousand and two I
      Went on and did what I had to do
      Beause it was time to change my life
      To become the woman that I am inside
      Ninety-seven dreadlocks all gone
      Looked in the mirror for the first time and saw that
      HEY...

      [Chorus]
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am not your ex-pec-tations no no
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am a soul that lives within

      [India.Arie]
      Good hair means curls and waves
      Bad hair means you look like a slave
      At the turn of the century
      It's time for us to redefine who we be
      You can shave it off
      Like a South African beauty
      Or get in on lock
      Like Bob Marley
      You can rock it straight
      Like Oprah Winfrey
      If its not what's on your head
      It's what's underneath and say
      HEY....
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am not your ex-pec-tations no no
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am a soul that lives within

      (oh, oh, oh)
      Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person?
      (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
      Does the way I wear my hair make me a better friend? nooo...
      (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
      Does the way I wear my hair determine my integrity?
      (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
      I am expressing my creativity...
      Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy
      Took away her crowning glory
      She promised God if she was to survive
      She would enjoy everyday of her life ooh...
      On national television
      Her diamond eyes are sparkling
      Bald headed like a full moon shining
      Singing out to the whole wide world like
      HEY...
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am not your ex-pec-tations no no
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am a soul that lives within

      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin
      I am not your ex-pec-tations no no
      I am not my hair
      I am not this skin

      I love when other black people think like me. All I could do was smh with all the comments. The young lady made history in less than a week and all yall can talk about is her hair? I didn't chime in or give an opinion at all yesterday.

      Congratulations to her. Not many people get to accomplish something so great at such a young age - in whatever their field or lane is. The young lady made history. That's huge. They mention her name from here til eternity, there's history attached. She's on her way to being set for life. I remember when Mary Lou Retton won her Gold medal. Her ass never worked another day in her life.

      I'm sure the next debate is gabby's financial success in comparison to Mary Lou Retton, race, etc.

      Gabby Douglas is fine she secured her a spot in the history books and has accomplish a defeat no one else could get. Talking about her hair is petty. People need to stop and so do the media.

      Hey er'body :waves:
      Gabby SLAYED on that floor routine, I was weeping like I had met sweet baby Jesus.
      As far as the topic :tea: My girl did it last night, and I was so happy to see her family in the stands. She is so humble, thoughtful, and respectful and most importantly she gives the glory to Kang Jesus. No matter what ppl do to try to knock this girl down it won't work cause God has got her covered, gwan head Gabby.
      Ready for track and field :yahoo:

      Like i told my sis last night all these twitter fools did was give her a multi million dollar dark and lovely contract cause those hair companies going to come at her hard. I love Gabby's love cause shes one of the few teenagers that maintain her innocent appeal. Just like 8 years ago people said Phelps looked like a dolphin and thst made him 40 mil, people going to keep talking and Gabby will be laughing all the way to the bank
