Gabby Douglas Gets Snubbed By NBC and Blackistan

NBC seems to refuse to acknowledge that is was Gabrielle Douglas, (America's Darling) who brought victory to the U.S. Gymnastics team. Instead all were hearing is the Jordyn Weiber waaaahmbulance. Does anyone care that the other girls got the US gold regardless of Jordyns setback? Does anyone not care about Gabby's high scores and the other 3 fabulous women who killed it? Stay pressed NBC.



Not to mention all the self-hating blacks commenting on her hair. Really? Especially with the obesity rates in our community. Gabby isn't a beauty queen she is the queen of flying.

I’m not excusing L’Oreal, but I will put this out there for people to consider. When was the last time you saw a television commercial selling a hair product? Ok, when was the last time you saw a woman walking around with shiny, bright hair like that? Gasp, bingo! For those of you who already caught my drift there is no need to read the next few sentences.
