While appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Joe Biden said biracial couples on TV are a reason why he has hope for America’s future.

The comments came as Biden was trying to answer the question, “Why are you so optimistic [about the future].” Biden said, “Look at the kids! Look at the young people — best educated, least prejudiced, most giving generation in American history.”

Biden, still answering why he was so optimistic, said  “Turn on the television — turn on — no, I’m serious! No, I’m serious, you turn on the TV, look at the ads, when’s the last time you saw biracial couples on TV? When’s the last time you saw the way — I mean, people are selling products — they do ads to sell products. And they sell products when people — they appeal to people.”

He went on to say, “This generation is going to change everything. We’ve just got to make sure we don’t give up. There’s an ability for us to do everything from … increase the access to education, health care — look what we did in health care, all the talk about it. I was able to reduce people’s bills about 400 bucks a month.”
