Former Vice President Joe Biden, the top Democratic candidate for president, is being criticized for making a racial comment after a ten-second video clip of him circulates the Internet. In the short clip that lacks context, he says “the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home was because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
However, after digging up the story via a quick Google search, I was able to find a report and a little bit of context around the quote.

The 10-second clip, which was originally shared on Sept. 29, was just a snippet of comments the Democratic nominee made during a Sept. 15 roundtable with veterans in Tampa, Fla.
In the expanded remarks, Biden had expressed a positive tone in dealing with the problems the country faces, particularly the ones that stem from the c-ronav-rus outbreak. He said that he's "more optimistic ... than I’ve ever been in my whole career."
"And they say, 'Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.' Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off," Biden told the roundtable attendees. "They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, 'Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.' Or all of a sudden people are realizing, 'My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.' And I think they’re ready."
