The Gabby Douglas Experiment is not a planned procedure or medical invention for analyzing her as a person or thing. Gabby Douglas however can be looked upon as a proven experiment as to showing proof that she is just like any other being given opportunities often forbidden people of her nationality due to economic restraints, lack of inclusive and or social upbringing.
Is it really all that important that Gabby Douglas is African American and won a Gold medal for all around Olympic gymnast? This article is not written to take away any accomplishment that the well trained Olympian Gabby Douglas has made in 2012. It is written as a reminder that first and foremost as a reminder that Gaby Douglas is a world citizen, human and American. A reminder that she also happens to be from black African descent.
Gaby Douglas is a reminder about how when African Americans are given the opportunities to excel in mainstream America, they simply can and will achieve the same maximum results as the majority who rules in executing programs such as the Olympics. It is not unusual to see black people invent, create, make, design, own and or run businesses, pull honor roll grades, get accepted into Ivy league schools, learn languages and do anything else that mainstream Americans of all age groups do. What is usual it seems sometimes even to African Americans when an African American achieves a feat normally achieved by say, a Caucasian or in a Caucasian dominated field, especially a field that calls for a lot of money and or wealthy mentor behind one to participate.
