Aug. 2: Gabby Douglas’s hair has been the topic of a ton of e-chatter for the past few days. After the 16-year-old Olympian sported a gelled-down ponytail – much like the hair styles of her fellow gymnasts – black Twitter lit up with comments from both men and women, complaining that her ‘do looked unkempt.

Aug. 6: Douglas responded to the hair nonsense, saying what we’ve all been saying: What is the big deal? According to USA Today, the teenage Olympian said, “I just simply gelled it back, put some clips in it and put it in a bun. Are you kidding me? I just made history. And you're focusing on my hair?”

 Jasmine Waiters, who plays basketball for Notre Dame de Namur in California, wrote a poem. And by wrote, I mean she knocked it out of the park. Via ESPN:

I shared this poem with a friend and he told me to put it on youtube. It's pretty much self explanatory.

"I'm proud because my president is black and my favorite gymnast is, too. So rock that ponytail, Gabby."

Wow. Let's hope we see a whole lot more of Jasmine Waiters.

VIDEO: edits out applause in Obama's West Point speech


Mygodalmightyogeezohmy! If Prez O gets applause, do you know what that means? Well, do you?

It means people listening to his speech, like, say, cadets-- military cadets-- at West Point-- actually approve of what he's saying! Yes, it's true. And apparently, that worries the heck out of ClusterFox.

It worries them so much, in fact, that they took out their editing scissors (manufactured by CensorshipCo). How patriotic of them.
