Skip to comments.Powell partly faults Gates (He's back!!!)
Posted on 07/28/2009 5:31:20 PM PDT by GOPsterinMA
General Colin Powell, one of the nation's most prominent African-American leaders, put some of the blame on Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. for the confrontation that has become a raging controversy.
Asked in an interview airing on CNN's "Larry King Live" tonight whether Gates was wrong to confront Cambridge police Sergeant James Crowley before being arrested in his own home, Powell replied, "I'm saying that Skip, perhaps in this instance, might have waited a while, come outside, talked to the officer, and that might have been the end of it.
"I think he should have reflected on whether or not this was the time to make that big a deal. But, he's just home from China, just home from New York. All he wanted to do was get to bed," added Powell.

Attention Whore alert. Powell needs face time.
“.... some of the blame ..”
Colin Powell is an affirmed racist.
No wonder he framed Scooter Libby to hang. Libby is white.
Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.
The Boston "Glob" does it again -- he was not arrested "in his own home." He was arrested outside, on the porch of a home he rents from the University.
Hey Colon! Stay where you’re at. We can do without the likes of your kind.
Awww...poor “Skip” (??????) was just tired and wanted to go nite-nite.
“Skip.” Are all these guys buddies?
Why is it that you have such a respectable military leader and when they become, willingly, political pawns, you rethink what their motivations were when they were in uniform?
I am kind of referring to Wesley Clark,also but he was a sniveling weasel. I always saw him as slipping through to General.
General Colin Powell, one of the nation’s most prominent African-American leaders ?
You must be kidding ? What exactly is the loser leading, pray tell ?
I still say the question begs to be answered....who was the second man there?
Cue the “Aw Geez Not This Crap Again” guy for Colin.
That was my question too.
Skip proved himself an outright racist with his Yo Mama remarks, yet all of these guys seem to know each other.
Obama proved his racism when he called the police stupid and now Colon Powell who voted race when he voted for Obama is gettin in on the racist act.
He is another jerk!
Put your head back up your colon, Powell. That way it’s harder to flap your stupid liberal jaws.
>> He is another jerk!
I realize you’re just being decent to the man, and that’s to your credit. But “jerk” does not even begin to describe John McCain.
Skip. Are all these guys buddies?”
They all travel in the same circles and all vacation together in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard.
Oak Bluffs has been a vacation place for black society for decades.
Barry used to vacation there.
He would usually stay with Charles Ogletree,
“ Skip’s “ lawyer.
Barry was going to stay among his people in Oak Bluffs, but, the Gates controversy blew that up,
so now they’re staying in Chilmark- a short distance away.
It’s fine that the Obamas want to vacation with just black people.
Like they did in Hawaii-their entourage was all black.
Just don’t lecture us, like Eric Holder did in Feb ,
that “ Americans are cowards “ because they will interact with other races during the work week,
but, not on week ends and on vacation.
