Cynthia is hard at work making Georgians proud.

Also Monday, black preachers, elected officials and activists in Atlanta cited McKinney’s recent run-in with Capitol police as an example of racial profiling and called what happened to her disrespectful.

Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta, along with members of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials, announced their continued support for the sixth-term congresswoman at a morning meeting.

Supporters say the incident has been blown out of proportion and politicized. Her treatment, they added, was excessive and shows that black elected officials aren’t immune to problems of double standards and racial profiling other African-Americans face.

“Racial profiling is a well thought out and planned attack on black political leaders,” state Rep. Alberta Abdul-Salaam said Monday. “It’s going from the gold dome down to the White House. It’s happening and it’s wrong.”

Poor, poor Cynthia. Ready: 1, 2, 3…..WHAAAAAAAA!
