My upart gets patted down every time I go through that one machine where you have to put your arms up. Luckily I've never had an agent make a spectacle of me. They just do a quick pat and I move on.

It's the new norm these days. Until there are significant WRITTEN complaints to the TSA offices asking why it seems to occur mainly with black women it will continue.

some do go too far and thats a legimate complaint but checking hair isn't 

im sure if we had a custom agent or airline checker on this board they'd probably tell u all about drugs and weapons they've found in weave and dreads

It does seem to be targeted toward black women and that's odd since people of other races wear weaves toupees etc.

I've only had them run their hands through my hair once, by another Jamaican woman.
It never happens to me when I fly domestic.
I guess Orlando isn't enough of a drug stop for them to care. LOL
