Gabby Douglas

I'd Kick Ass at Snowboarding, Too

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?

I'm BLACK I ski, I love it actually. I've been skiing since 7 years old and now I'm 32. I was serious about it I'd first got lessons... see that's the problem on this site; racism, racism, racism. Tmz is the fuel to the racist fire. I will never understand what anyone get out of being racist. Racist people are taught to be racist, and it's a shame. If racism was never passed down from generation to generation, like some heirloom. Maybe, it wouldn't it exist, but people are so hateful, they rather keep it going....shame

Can't stand this arrogant little jerk. When he teammates didn't make the AA finals Gabby's comments back were " We all have to live with disappointments," She's a troll
