Who has time to waste on Gabby Douglas’s mom backtracking her fat ass to some more BS. I don’t. Apparently she backtracks the race issue a bit.
ONE and two
This is really becoming so stupid. Everyone gets bullied. Lets whine to everyone about it
Lets just say that the people associated with Excalibur Gymnastics are none too happy with Gabby Douglas’s interview on Oprah tonight. I did not watch it so I won’t comment on what she said but this came over a facebook feed and someone sent it to me by the mother of an ex gymnast from the gym and she sounds very angry. I am not naming her name because this is her private facebook but I can totally understand why she would be upset.
I started my blog on Gabby and race multiple times and could never get it right so I just stopped trying. As a white person I might not have ever been discriminated against due to me being black but that doesn’t mean I have not put up with some crap due to my gender or color. It happens all the time. I just chose not to complain about it. That is the way I handled it.
Gabby being black is a non issue for me. She keeps bringing up the fact she is black. So do the people in her camp. Her brother was the first person I saw write on twitter about race and he is black. It was never an issue for me or for anyone else that can’t stand her. It’s her attitude that pisses me off.
My opinion is simple. Until we stop putting ourselves into categories, ANY categories things are never going to change. Whoever originally came up with the comments ” the human race” got it right.
What do you think?
Shame shame shame on you Gabby Douglas .I just watched the Oprah show so excited to see you and I was so disappointed in what was said. How dare you insinuate that excallibur treated you poorly because of your race. That fact is Excalibur has had more Afro Americans on the national team than any other club in the USA. Marcia, Morgan, Sheriese, Britney and yes Gabby. I do not think God wants people to hate and especially the people that helped you achieve your dream. You should show a little more respect to those who did so much for you and the coaches and girls who actually stopped there practice to watch you compete in the Olympic finals. Girls were spread out on the mats cheering for you and even had signs made for you, does that sound like a group of bully’s to you?Excalibur has been nothing but supportive of you and it is just a shame to see how unappreciative you are to everyone who was there for you in the beginning. God knows the truth and I truly pitty that you feel the need to lie about others in order for your sob story to sound convincing. Everyone knows how amazing of a gymnast you are and you have many young girls looking up to you and I am sure that you have hurt some of you former teammates with your heartless remarks. I hope you can find it in you to tell the truth one of these days.
Here is what an ex black gymnast from Excailbur has to say about this. I feel bad posting ehr words but it needs to be said
This is the last thing I am going to say. People have NO reason to lie, but everyone knows and should know that the truth has a way of being exaggerated and turned into something bigger to create a story out of it that people can relate to. It’s only human to say my experiences with gymnastics have not all been phenomenal, but that is just the sport itself, but many of my experiences have been great and memorable and these experiences have made me stronger and have pushed me to be the person I am today. I do feel I reached many of my dreams and had many successes in the sport of gymnastics and a ton of them during the time I was in club gymnastics. It just pains me that many of my teammates (sisters/bestfriends) are being hurt by outside people who do not even know ANYTHING about the situation at hand and only know what they see on tv or in social media. i love Excalibur Gymnastics and would never regret a moment of my life I have spent in this gym including the future time I am going to be apart of this organization. I just pray people will open their eyes and realize one persons experience is not a reflection of an entire organization and the young and teenage gymnasts who are working hard everyday to make their dreams a reality.
