  1. I’m Black

    I’m Rastafarian
    I’m Jamaican
    I’m Nigerian American
    I’m Bahamian

    And I’m African dwelling in the wilderness of the beast North America
    WHERE DID YOUR FAMILIES BOAT LAND? Dam we need to thightin up

  2. This is typical behavior of those who disrespect others in private only to deny it in public. The gym’s defensive response proves that they promoted a culture where this kind of ignorance could (and did) happen. They are playing themselves by questioning this young lady’s experience and credibility. What does she have to gain by telling the truth about racism in America? She couldn’t say anything back then because she lacked the power. Now that she has some power, she can tell of her ordeal.

  3. Why would a mother and daughter come out with a lie like this knowing it would kill all her big endorsement deals? Personally I believe them and if it’s not true it could cover all the other young Black girls in the sport of gymnastics that has felt the pain of racism I could only imagine the untold stories. One thing is certain the behavior of whites as it pertains to racism will remain the same as long as Black people refuse to come together and leave the bosom of white people. Now she’s going to have to suck up to them for endorsements that lesser talent routinely receives and you know what black people are going to do sit back and watch then wait until it happens to the next young African American. [ BLACK NATIONAL TREASURY ] is long past due. Respect will never come until we get it together. 42 million The number of Black people identified in America in a 2010 Census. That makes up 13.6 percent of the total U.S. population. $ 4.00 out of my check a week x 4 weeks = $ 16.00 x 12= $ 192.00 now $ 192.00 x half all African Americans 20 million =’s $ 3,840,000,000.00 is that right and that’s only half the Blacks for one year. We can fix our own schools, and we can start to build things. Without having to ask the tea party House of Representatives. What are we scared?Let this Black caucus in congress keep playing games in this majority rule establishment we need to be taking care of our own business.

  4. Amen PCDub! I sent my daughter to Karoli camp 20 years ago in hopes that she too could be the next Olympian at the age of 6, the sport screams racism! Those girls are hand picked and I don’t care how well a Black girl is if the judges don’t want you in the limelight your score will reflect that. I am sure that is why Dominique has so many tears! She was denied the Gold for years until she could not win. The judges took the Russian out of 3rd place and put Weber in so that she would receive “3″ medals as opposed to Gabrielle getting all the glory with “2″. RACISM at its finest! The scoring is subjective as to who the industry and judges decide who will get the glory. Gabrielle could not be denied just like OBAMA, take a close look at 2016 scoring. We need a Black gymnastics camp because Black girls have the same talent as the whites but the sport just like golf before Tiger, are excluded! I hope everyone recognizes the potential in your girls knowing that the road ahead is tough! The previous camps want to take credit for her success but Gabrielle knows how she was isolated and comments made she has no reason to lie. Again, the sport is subjective as is the opportunity to excell. When a parent has to send their precious daughter off to strangers, hoping, they take care of them, it is traumatic in itself. It takes endurance and determination not to crumble and give up which Gabrielle wanted to do probably many times. This was her year and might be the only year if the industry decides. This year and for the next 3 years Gabrielle get the MONEY you deserve for all the hard work and racism you endured. OBAMA 2012

  5. I believe her and I will tell you why as black people we get treated in a sub-par way that is never talked about it because its always turned around that you are the problem.As a black man who has went to pvt schools did really well in sports..however in my classes you could count us on 1 hand.. white people will always dog you on the down low..they do it to you at work and in play,.for her to understand not to say a word casue that could get you sent home until after she handled her business is the right thing to do…now I know some of you are saying NO speak up and be heard.. take action….but if you do white people will turn the tables…she did the right thing..YOU GO GABBY….AND REMEMBER WHEN WHITE PEOPLE SAY HE OR SHE HAS A BAD ATTITUDE YOU KNOW YOU ARE DONE IF GABBY HAD SAID ANYTHING THATS WHAT SHE WOULD BE KNOWN FOR,,,GOOD JOB YOUNG LADY AND TRY TO MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR DAD YOU ONLY GOT ONE.

  6. I really hope this is a true story because if she is coming out with lies to make her look better or like a victim she is not a role model for other african american youth or any youth at all. If that was happening to me I would not even want to go live in a house with white people which is what she ultimately did.
