As a natural hair chick myself, I can say that this has happened to me on more than one occasion. And my hair isn’t anywhere nearly as full as Solange Knowles but I think the tendency for natural hair Black women to be patted down is just a ticking time bomb. They’re gonna corner the wrong person and it’s gonna spring a huge backlash, at least in my opinion. But Solange took to her Twitter to talk about her hair receiving a pat-down by a TSA agent in Miami.
Solange did comply and it seemed that it really wasn’t too much of a bother, as she then started a game afterwards called “What did TSA find in Solange’s fro?”. Among a few of the funny responses were Romney’s 5 Point Plan, The Proud Family and a solider named T.O.N.Y. (which is a nod to one of her singles from her last album). Good to see she took it like a champ!
