So, I posted this headline in my stories, and the response has been pretty... surprising! And now I want to ask EVERYBODY: has TSA ever given you the Natural Hair Pat Down?
I bet that even if you haven't, you're not surprised by this AT ALL. This explains why WE get our hair searched more often- the scanners haven't been programmed to recognize Black hair! IDK about you, but that hair search was humiliating.... at least she wore gloves 🤷🏿♀️
I hope to see more Black women on these programming teams, because these machines only recognize what they've been PROGRAMMED to see. This way our features will not be seen as an anomaly- we'll be the norm.
