1. She's a beautiful young athlete. I didn't see complaints about her hair.

But the person complaining is an idiot, don't give them any energy.

What a great performance by Gabby!

6. The Hair Thing

there were some tweets, apparently being a 2time gold medalist, and the first Sista in America to win this event don't mean shit if you have a messy bun to some people of color.

personally I think Gabby has a beautiful healthy thick head of hair. Wish my follicles were as strong and healthy thick and long as hers.

Bravo Gabby!!!!! You are inspirational!
Literally from your head to your toes!!!!

8. Women's hair is in many ways political among African American women

Always has been in my lifetime and is someplace I know better than to go.

7. When doing what she did one needs to keep the hair pulled back and out of the way. I would consider

her an idiot if she went for a stylish do when doing a gymnastic routine but some people are complete assholes and are complaining because she had her hair back in a pony tail.

11. I hadn't heard anything about this until someone brought it up here.

Seems like that "Obama isn't black enough" crap we went through 4 years ago.

14. You have got to be kidding me. Her hair? Seriously? Maybe we should creatic Phelps hair

Wow, just wow. I'm almost speechless which most of you here at DU know would be unusual.

The US citizen Gabby Douglas just won Gold in the All-Around and helped her team to the gold and we're talking about her freaking hair????

How many people are talking about Michael Phelps' hair? No, they are talking about how great he is and how he represents the best in US sports.

But when it comes to a woman, and an African-American woman at that, we talk about her freaking hair.

The zombie talking heads should be talking about how Gabby is so great (like Phelps) and how she will be an inspiration to girls and women all over the US. They should be trying to bask in the Gold she so rightly earned.

On days like this I just really hate my country and the people in it.

15. I bet the complainers could even get onto the beam

Let's see them do somersaults before complaining.

17. No, no one complained. Sometimes when no one says the things that someone expects

other people to say, they make up a story about it. A lot of that going around lately.

20. All I can say is that in an amourous moment I messed up my date's hair...


...and I learned a painful lesson about messing with black women's hair.
