Gabby Douglas

I'd Kick Ass at Snowboarding, Too

8/12/2013 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

081213_gabby_douglas_launchCall her Kanye West ... 'cause Gabby Douglas is continuing to SMASH racial stereotypes like they were TMZ cameras.

The 17-year-old Olympic sweetheart -- the FIRST black woman to win gold in the individual all-around --  was at LAX this weekend when we asked ... is there ANOTHER sport she would dominate if she didn't become a world class gymnast.

Her answer -- snowboarding ... a sport that's almost as white as the mountains they shred.

Next up ... hockey? Lacrosse? Polo? Line dancing?

Ummmm TMZ, how is Kanye West "smashing" stereotypes? It seems to me, that West is perpetuating the "angry black man" stereotype. Let's also throw in the getting off on his girlfriends porn tape with another man, the fact he likes to use the word bytch in his songs, and the fact he was bascally absent during his wifes pregnancy.
.
Gabby worked incredibly hard for what she achieved. Don't lump her in with some clown rapper.

But Bukake Boy Justin Bieber's bubble ass is more preferred by Kanye West, Usher, Harvey, and millions more "manly" men.

If TMZ would know its history, they would know that first PROFESSIONAL hockey league in North America was the Coloured Hockey League (CFL) established in 1889. 400 Blacks dominated the ice across Canada for over 30+ years.

White people can stay dominating snowboarding and other winter sports. Black folks are not trying to get buried in avalanches or get wipe out by smashing into trees and rocks.

They can also dominant climbing Mount Everest, flying out of planes, bungee jumping, flying (jumping) off mountains into shallow water, down-slope skiing at a gazillion miles an hour. Oh, we miss Billy. I'm not going up on no mountain in -100 degree weather looking for you-you can freeze up there-not for all I care, but you knew the risks going in.
