That’s a lot to lay on the tiny shoulders of a child. Do you feel this much “ire” every time you see a white girl with a messy bun?

But they are comparing her to other female athletes, aren’t they? Not the average population. I haven’t read enough about this to form an opinion. I am just asking questions.
