On Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a racially-charged gaffe while describing women in the Detroit area, referring to them as “women from the hood.”

Biden made the remarks while speaking at a forum on the future of America’s middle class, which was hosted by the Brookings Institution and the Biden Foundation.

“Ordinary people do extraordinary things,” Biden said. “We become awful elitist, we don’t think ordinary people can do things that, like, program, code.”

Biden said that learning how to code is “not rocket science” and that when coders were needed in Detroit, Michigan, women were picked “from the hood” to learn how to code.

“We went we hired some folks to go into the neighborhoods, they picked pick 58 women, turns out, from the hood.”
