Yes, when America went to the London Summer Olympics we brought the world out. We sent our multiracial ethnicity across the waters, accomplished some major feats and then we really did it...we lost our minds and took a major celebratory moment and used it to bash and dash the joy from a young athlete's heart. I applaud her for being strong and ignoring the ignorant adults. What does this bashing do to the ego and self esteem of Gabby and other little girls who look up to her? What a shame to waste a moment, an iota in history to be a crab and try to pull someone down.
What the heck were people thinking? As this child stated, and did it so eloquently was, ""Nothing is going to change," she said. "I'm going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it."?" Gabby made big a time triumph, will forever be in the pages of time, history, and yet a shadow over this major accomplishment will forever be in her mind and now in history. Her people, her American family, her African-American family cared more about the clips in her hair than the terrific accomplishment over a grueling sport. Read about her feat in London, here.
Get off your high horse you lazy, crab in the buckets and applaud this enormous asset to our history and our heritage.Yes, we bring the world out. Let's just remember to do it with style and grace.
