Wiring a 4 socket medicine cabinet

I have a 4 socket light with the medicine cabinet. 3 are already wired together. The 4th is seperate but has enough wire to attach to the other 3. There is a very short wire attached to the seperated light socket. Is this the grounding wire? It is hardly long enough to reach the green bolt to attach it to. Do I strip the wire to attach it to the green grounding bolt?

Got a picture?
Should be all the blacks, and all the whites get tied to the same color incoming wire. (all blacks with black, whites with white)
There should be a bare or a green wire on the light that connects to the incoming bare wire.
