Millions of viewers worldwide watched Gabby Douglas balance, jump and twirl herself into winning a gold medal for Team USA, in the Summer Olympics.
Yet, I was amazed at the backlash from Twitterati about – of all things – her hair. The discussion on the texture of African American hair aside, what resonated with me was how nasty people could get. Naysayers could not marvel at the feats she accomplished, her incredible talent, and what she had to sacrifice for her to even get to compete in London.
