Woman's Afro Sets Off Panic at Airport

Just in case you were wondering, this woman is an adult. She's 53 years old! Her voice -- WTH? Anyway, natural hair stylist to the stars Isis Brantley of Dallas says she was catching a flight home from Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last week when a TSA agent demanded her afro be checked for explosives. The same thing happened to another woman in Seattle last June, but she hardly got as much media attention as Isis is. Isis says she was embarrassed and in tears when the the agent started “digging” through her hair to check for weapons. She asked the agent to “just find what you’re looking for and please hurry and leave." Isis says the agents patted her hair downn in full view of other travelers instead of asking to return to a private area for screening, but the TSA said Isis left the checkpoint area before screening was completed and she refused a private screening that was offered. This lady probably has so many stories to tell about traveling through airports.

With a business to promote, Isis is currently on a media tour. Here's another interview.
