  • Hair and Travel

    Wasn't sure if this is the place to post. But if you've ever been 'head checked' by @TSA while traveling, add your experience on the TSA website or social media pages using the #headchecked hastag. I very much appreciate the job TSA does for the most part.

    But, my hope is that while reinforcing how fruitless the profiling of predominantly black women wearing natural hairstyles is, it will also show that the practice isn't limited to larger or international airports like LAX or MSP. Also, if you're feeling it, share your feedback with the @ACLU. Fly proud and free ladies.
    The ACLU of Northern California and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently reached an agreement following a complaint submitted by the ACLU against unnecessary, unreasonable and racially discriminatory hair searches that single out black women at airports.
