Guess who's been racially profiled?

I watched the interview with Colin Powell last night on Larry King with great interest. I felt that Powell's comments were respectful both to Professor Gates and Sergeant Crowley. What floored me was when Larry King asked Colin Powell if he had ever been racially profiled. You can watch Powell's commentary here, then read my comment below. No peaking:

Did the same thing strike you? If Colin Powell could be racially profiled while he was the national security advisor to the president of the United States, what does that say for the countless other black Americans that claim they have been racially profiled?

Shouldn't we take their claims a little more seriously?
