The comments about Gabby's hair were ridiculous. Most of the gymnasts had their hair pulled back in similar buns or ponytails. It was an entirely appropriate hair style for the strenuous activity she was engaged in. What serious athlete goes to the gym with fancy styled hair? It will just get messed up. Or get in your way. The girl has pretty long hair when she takes it down, and having it fall over her face while trying to spot a landing sounds like a great way to break an ankle. With regard to the first comment, the criticism of the author doesn't make sense to me. What does it mean for an article to be 'red'? If it means that it must be from a native perspective or about issues relevant to native people, I would argue that the fact that it is written by Steve Russell, Cherokee necessarily satisfies these requirements. It may not be every native person's perspective or interest, but I defy you to find any subject that is!
