Gen. Colin Powell talks about the Henry Louis Gates arrest with Larry King. He said the story "went viral" when President Obama commented on the story. Also, Powell thinks that America "isn't quite post-racial" at this time. "These problems still exist in post-racial America." However, he suggested that Gates should not have argued with the policeman arresting him. "You don't argue with a police officer," he says.

Powell also called the arresting cop, Sergeant James Crowley, "an outstanding police officer."

Also, at 5:10, Powell admits he's been profiled "many times" as a national security advisor.
