This is great! My sister and I had Dominique Dawes to look up to. Now our little cousins will have Gabby and Simone! Gabby won't have to be the sole Black girl and neither will Simone. :)
I wonder if they just said, "Fuck it...send in the Negroes."After Gabby Douglas upstaged Jordan Wieber at the Olympics, I think America got hit with the "In It to Win It" bug and thought, "Screw it...let's just get whoever can win it."
If that's the case, it makes them a helluva lot more progressive than so many (looking right at you, Hollywood!). Even if it's much more about their bottom line than being decent human beings.
