BIDEN: ‘Some Black Woman’ Stocking Grocery Shelves Kept Me Safe During Virus Lockdown

'Lord, these people have done so much...for me...'

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that he and millions of other Americans were able to stay safely at home during the coronavirus shutdown because “some black woman” was stocking the grocery store shelves for them.

“The American public, the blinders have been taken off. They’ve all of a sudden seen a helluva lot clearer,” Biden said on Sept. 15 in Tampa at a campaign event with veterans. “They’ve seen, ‘Geez, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some black woman was able to stock 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,’” Biden continued.

This isn’t the first time Biden has made a racist, off-the-cuff comment.

Earlier this year on the radio show The Breakfast Club, Biden claimed that African American voters who can’t decide between him and President Donald Trump aren’t really black.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said in May.

Biden later apologized and said he hadn’t meant to take the black vote for granted.

“I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted. But nothing could be further [from] the truth,” Biden said. “I’ve never, ever done that, and I’ve earned it every time I’ve run. I was making the point that I have never taken the vote for granted.”

Later this summer, Biden appeared to suggest that the black community lacks diversity.

“By the way, what you all know but most people don’t know, unlike the African-American community—with notable exceptions—the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

But Trump argued that Biden’s comments revealed what he truly thinks about the African American community.
