We don’t know this young lady’s name (wait, we know it now: Jasmine Waiters), but we can only say that today is one of those days where we thank God that people send us things through our Facebook inbox. This young lady’s poetic tribute is an outrageous and justifiable response to the crazy controversy over Gabby Douglas’ hair.
A few idiots on Twitter and in hair salons around the country were making remarks about the quality of Gabby’s hair, even as she made history as the first African American to ever win the all-around competition in gymnastics at the Olympics. Gabby is a two-time gold medalist, yet there are some negroes who are so ignorant that they think she’d have been better off spending her training time at the hair salon.
Check this poem out below. We promise you’ll be jumping out of your seat by the time it’s over.
As her video has gone viral, Jasmine finally sent out this note to the public (below). To be so bold and beautiful in her poem about Gabby, she presents herself in a very down-to-earth manner. An amazing black woman indeed.
