Dallas hairstylist Isis Brantley is the latest sister to complain that she was subject to an unreasonable TSA experience, after her large Afro was agressively searched by an agent in Atlanta:

I’m more inclined to holler “stupidity” than I am “blatant racism” when I read stories like this, though I do feel that the casual disregard/distrust of Black women plays a factor. Brantley’s hair is beyond conspicuous…would it make sense for her to hide something in a place that is so obvious and eye catching? I’m all for protecting the safety of air travellers, but this just seems really foolish.
