Black people do suffer from self hate issues. We are constantly indocrinated to be love all things Eurocentric and think any positive about Blacks is negative.Some Black people are probably empathetic to some whites not liking a Black girl succeeding over a white girl. So instinctively they lash out.

Couldn't it maybe, just maybe, be possible that black folks have unrealistic standards of beauty? Think about it. Skin lightening creams. Ridiculous weaves. Light colored contacts. Long finger nails. My question remains... do black people hate themselves or see themselves as ugly? Is that what this whole nonsense is really about. Because right now, I can guarantee that white people are not laughing with us this time.
the irony of bw bashers being bwnot surprised
What the hell is wrong with black people these days? Growing up and having my own Afrocentric views and pride about who I was and where I come from, I never dreamed a day would come where I could honestly say that I am a shamed of being black. I mean, come on... black people need to wake the hell up! It's like blacks today are walking around lost and clueless. I got a taste of black shame when such a big fuss was made over Mary J Blige's Burger King commercial. Then it became known that black people can't advertise chicken for a fast food chain because they feel like they are being made fun of. Are you serious? Listen, I don't even sing... but if someone offers me a million dollars to sell some damn chicken, I'm going to take the money and pray for black people. Slavery ended a while ago, didn't it? Well... at least physical slavery kinda ended... sort of... that's a different topic.Congrats to Gabby Douglass! She has overcome a lot and gave black people a good reason to be proud. What? Her hair you say? You don't understand. Ms. Douglass is not a supermodel. She is an athlete for the Olympics. Her hair you say again? Are you serious? It doesn't look cute? Wow.If you are a black woman and you don't wear weave or get a perm, the chances are that your hair probably looks a lot like this."As American teen gymnast Gabby Douglas continues to wow the world with her grace, style, and growing collection of gold medals, an unfortunate backlash is making the rounds. Various social-media sites and platforms have begun to chastise the new sports darling for, of all things, the upkeep of her hair." Does this make you feel a shamed of people? Not yet? This woman is white so her hair texture is different. Nonetheless, no one is dressed for a photo shoot.This child is the victim of a race that hates how they look and are perceived by white people.Douglass is one of the few African-American gymnasts ever to compete in the Olympic Games and the first black woman to take the all-around individual title—has helped her capture the covers of Time and Sports Illustrated. Even President Obama called her to congratulate her on her gold medals. However, on social media outlets, the most important detail that many blacks noticed was that they didn't like her hairstyle. So you're going to tell me that black people are embarrassed that a superstar and accomplished Olympic black superhero doesn't have a Beyonce weave? Sadly, yes. The outrage over Douglass' hair has become an online sensation. What I think has happened is that black people have become so entrenched in looking and acting like and wanting to be white, that they feel our representatives for anything black related, should appear more white. It's not who we are but who we have become. This outrage over hair has only proven how self conscious black people have really become over the years and I think leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr or even Malcolm X would turn over in their graves if they were privy to the outrage blacks are making over hair. Maybe black media is to blame and perhaps blacks need to take a closer look at what is really going on. I'm sure if you check out any popular rap video you will see light skin and white women with large rear ends shaking themselves for the camera. Looking white has always been "the thing to do" in black culture and this new outrage over hair is testimony of how petty, insecure and ridiculous black people have become. Think about it... Douglass is black, and therefore she has hair that is similar to the texture and type of hair that most black people have. The fact that she is performing in the Olympics will make it quite difficult for her to maintain a perm, when her mission is to really win a medal. And at a time when black people should be the most supportive and the most proud, they tear down this young lady and complain that her hair doesn't look like a supermodel. The outrage is silly and it is my belief that black people need to wake up. There also needs to be an apology made and this is a time that blacks deserve to be criticized for allowing this nonsense to go viral. I can't take the silliness anymore. I am not ashamed of Gabby Douglass. I am ashamed that the majority of black people are so insecure about being black that they would let this thing become as big of an issue as this has become.There was a time when black people would be insulted if someone made a comment about black people having nappy hair. In fact, when a white person made the famous comment about "them nappy headed black girls," he lost his job. Then it was said that we are too touchy and sensitive. And now we have turned a similar issue into the laughingstock of the internet. If I didn't know better, I would say this justifies the previous statement that was made years ago and the radio host should receive his job back. There is a great deal of contradiction here. So in effect, a black superhero who should be commended for her efforts instead of ridiculed has yet another obstacle to face. Besides being the only black person to compete in the Olympics and win two gold medals, she now has to fight off rumors about "her bad hairstyle." When in fact, I don't really see what the big deal about her hair is. Or could it be that enough white people didn't make any insulting remarks about black people that we could complain about this year, so they had to insult themselves? Black women used to get upset when a black woman wore a ridiculous weave. Now black women get insulted because she is not wearing a ridiculous weave. Maybe black people just like being the laughingstock. That must be it!
