Last week Cynthia McKinney was grabbed by a capital police officer who claimed that her change of hair style was the reason he did not recognize her. I wonder if he can't recognize the white men in suits when they change their hair.
Weather or not Cynthia is "crazy" like many of her colleagues report is irrelevant to the fact that this was clearly a case of racial profiling. According to a reliable source of a friend, the capital police regularly wave people right through with very little security.
Cynthia McKinney is a racist, Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, said on Fox News Channel. I guess Mr. Delay forgot that people of color living in the united states cannot be racist because racism is a combination of predjudice, power and privilegege - and only he holds that combination. I guess he forgot about all of the far-right racist and white supremacy groups that he associates with.
India Arie's new single "I am not my hair" could not have come at a better time. Cynthia McKinney is not her hair. She is not her skin. She is the soul that lives within.
Listen to the new single here! There dance remix is so hot!
