Gold medalist Gabby Douglas may seem like she’s on top of the world now, but it wasn’t always that way. The teenager recently told Oprah Winfrey that she experienced racially-charged bullying at Virginia Beach’s Excalibur Gymnastics. Most people have been harassed at some point, especially if they stand out from the crowd (been there), so I never doubted she put up with a lot of nonsense from teammates. But a former gym member is arguing that the 16-year-old could be exaggerating what happened to her, leading me to believe that she was merely oblivious to the Olympic star’s taunting.

I’ve come to a rather sad conclusion in recent weeks: High school never really ends. You want to know why? Because people still find it perfectly acceptable to attack others for the way they look. More specifically, adults take pleasure in laughing at the expense of 16-year-old Olympic champion Gabby Douglas. She’s at the age where this kind of harassment is often expected from low-life peers, but she agrees it was ridiculous for others to focus on her hair after she landed her second gold medal in three days.
