(CNSNews.com) – Former Vice President Joe Biden said at an even held in a church in Kenosha, Wisc., on Thursday that he grew up in a neighborhood where “you either became a firefighter or a priest.”

“You know that old definition of a firefighter: God made man and then He made a couple firefighters,” said Biden.

“You’re all crazy, thanks God,” Biden said.

“I grew up in a neighborhood you either became a firefighter or a priest. I wasn’t qualified for either. So, here’s I am,” Biden said.

“But all kidding aside, think of what’s happened. Think of all the people. Who were all those people?” Biden asked. “You’ve got over 6,000 young dreamers, quote-unquote, ‘dreamers,’ the Hispanic community, who in fact are on the front lines dealing with COVID. 

“You have all those folks working in a supermarket, stacking the shelves, making five, six, seven bucks an hour and, in fact, they’re mostly minorities, African Americans, Latinos,” Biden said. 

“People are beginning to figure out who we are as a country. This is not who we are. This is not who we are,” Biden said.

“So, the first point I want to make to you all is: I am not pessimistic. I am optimistic about the opportunity if we seize it,” Biden said.
