She Lost By A Hair

U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney lost her bid for Congress to Hank Johnson in the Georgia Democratic primary.

Reasons abound. To wit:

1. Voting irregularities (McKinney's claim)

2. The Evil Media (also her claim).

3. How about her constituents getting sick and tired of her antics? Whether spouting off conspiracy theories about 911 or going all Naomi Campbell on a Capitol Hill security guard, McKinney undoubtedly lost the respect of her base. Black folks don't always have to vote in lock step because a candidate is an incumbent, or a Democrat or an African American, you know.

4.Here's what I think: It had to be the hair. Lately it's looked a hot mess, and was hardly in "blackwoman order" as Prof. Kim would say.

I am an advocate for natural hair, as I wear natural hair, but more so I am advocate for professional behavior, and I believe that she is testing the waters on both issues, the hair could be natural and well maintained, and she could get her point across more effectively without all the antics... Makes you wonder... Thanks for the article
