Vice President Kamala Harris made a surprise stop to the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in downtown Greensboro on her visit to Greensboro on Monday, April 19.
Earlier in the day, Harris spoke at Guilford Technical Community College and toured Thomas Built Buses. Chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners Skip Alston, one of the founders of the museum, was with Harris that morning and invited her to see the museum – and he said he was delighted she accepted the invitation.
Her appearance at the civil rights museum wasn’t publicly announced. However, by 4 p.m., downtown Greensboro was full of police, bomb-sniffing dogs, Secret Service agents and large black SUVs.
During her visit to the museum, Harris sat at the historic lunch counter where four North Carolina A&T State University students sat in 1960 and started the national civil rights Sit-In Movement.
Harris also took a whirlwind tour of the museum.
At one point in the visit, the Secret Service let an entourage of national media traveling with Harris in briefly to take pictures, though the Secret Service kept the Rhino Times from entering the room.
Alston said later that they did not allow him to take pictures during Harris’s visit to the museum but that some official photos would be provided later.
He also said that he was very pleased that Harris made the stop, which will help draw national attention to the museum.
Some of Harris’ admirers had caught wind that she would be stopping by the museum and a small group waited in the lobby to catch a glimpse of Harris as she entered and exited from a side door.
A hearty Harris paused and waved, and, from a distance, asked how everyone was doing. One of the well-wishers shouted back, “We love you!”
One Secret Service agent told the Rhino Times that Harris’ visit would not be long because “She’s got a plane to catch,” referring to Air Force Two sitting at Piedmont Triad International Airport. The agent thought a moment, and then added, “Of course, it will wait for her.”
Is Greensboro near the border? You know the “job” she was assigned by President Biden.
No it isn’t near the border but it’s city government is full of extreme leftists who’ll make her feel at home
Good that she felt at home
Someone should’ve asked her that, so she could cackle-laugh and say, “I’m not visiting today!”
Us: When is she going to the border? This is absurd.
Her: I think I’ll go to NC and make hard hat jokes and maybe visit a museum no one’s ever heard of to pacify the local body politic. Hahahaha, citizens are so stupid they won’t notice I totally ditched another chance to go to that border thing.
Yeah, that’s great that our first Jamaican-Indian VP can drop by and waste time when she’s supposed to be doing her job.
The less she does her job, the better off we all are.
No argument from me on that!
While visiting our fair city did Kamala get to see anyone resembling an illegal border breaker? Was she exposed to COVID or lord knows what from those same people?
Having our Indian/Jamacain VP hustle through Thomas bus didn’t faze her. She’s well familiar with busses transporting people into states and towns that don’t want them.
What a sham, and at what expense to “we the people”?
Is there anything Skip won’t do for a photo-op???
Now now please be respectful of our next president wink wink nod nod
That visit really helps the sad, sorry, sickening mess at our border. Some VP you turned out to be.
Maybe she should have waited till today and the verdict then should could have called for unity just like Joe isn’t doing.
Joe Jill and kamalia called for unity didn’t they cal the Floyd family after joe got the “right” verdict he prayed for. What an ass he is. The damn administration just like our council God help us
How does this so-called “vice-president” have the time to come to this area and schmooze when she is vitally needed to visit the southern border and tell our idiot president that the border must be secured and closed. This administration is a disgrace. It is full of people chosen because of their race, sex or sexual disorders. What has happened to having people with experience run this country? The concept of diversity and inclusion is simply a reason to discriminate against the most experienced people who could fill the positions. It goes right along with the ridiculous claim that the US is filled with systemic racist policy. Our country has never been in such a critically difficult state. If you are a patriot who believes in the Constitution, you need to voice your opinion to our elected officials and let them know that the current state of affairs is unacceptable to true Americans.
Do you suppose Kamala’s “cackle” comes from her being high?
What a miserable trollop.
People at my workplace were dismayed that Kamala Harris suddenly appeared in downtown Greensboro, and streets seemed to be randomly blocked preventing cars from traveling on various streets. Employees getting off work at my location could not get to appointments, etc. Frustration built as people here discussed how Ms. Harris was able to drop into our city, but she could not travel to the border and address the situation there. Didn’t President Biden assign her to oversee the border situation? She and the current administration are one big mess.
I think the responses today are the best ever about a TOPIC..There are some great people in and around Greensb.Let’s just vote out all the Democrats in our town and state!!!!!
Where was Clarence Henderson ??
Well, she is coming back!!!
Did y’all get your invitation to the 2022 Civil Rights Gala? I did and she is being given the Trailblazer Award. My Rabbi is getting one too and I had thought about going. But if I ran (assuming she will actually be here and not via ZOOM) into VP Harris I do not know what I would say to her because the trap on my mouth no longer works.
