Updo backlash?

This columnist at Jaunted thinks so:
I can feel Adiele's pain. After going through the full body scanner at the San Diego International Airport last Wednesday, I was also pulled aside and asked to wait until a female TSA agent was available to go through my hair. What? I chose to go through the scanner so I wouldn't have someone touch me, but in the end, I was still going to have a stranger fondling my hair?  ...
My guess is after being accused of racially profiling Adiele, the TSA will be checking more and more buns and braids to prove they aren't racist. So, you may want to keep your hair down until you actually board your next flight, or at least brace yourself for a possible updo pat-down.
