LOL, THE BLACK GIRLS WERE GOIN OFF ON GABBY DOUGLAS, OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL RECIPIENT, ABOUT HER HAIR NOT BEING DONE DURING THE COMPETITION. SHE SAID…
“The last time I checked, when you play a sport, you sweat. I know I do. And when a Black woman who has chosen to wear her hair straight begins to sweat, her hair will (not might) begin to revert back to its natural coily, curly or kinky state,” she wrote. “Some of us are sitting up right now with our hair done but suffering from high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, obesity and/or a lack of energy. Oh, but the hair is on point.”

HAHAHAHA… GO OFF GABBY

Before 9:00 a.m. on a Tuesday morning in August, APEX Gymnastics in Leesburg, Virginia, is already filled with dozens of budding gymnasts. The three-year-olds, dressed in leotards still too big for them and with ponytails that won’t stay up, bounce on the trampoline, while the intermediate-level girls laugh amongst themselves as they put chalk on their hands and prepare to tackle the daunting uneven bars or four-inch balance beams.
