Most White Americans are Oblivious

What exactly is going on?
Lately there have been many cases in the news involving incidents between caucasian police officers and african american men. For example there was recently a case where a young man named Michael Brown was shot by an officer in a convenient store and was shot because he attempted to reach for the officers gun. In training, the cop is instructed to shoot in the chest and then the face yet this officer gave him the benefit of the doubt cane sent a bullet into his leg. After that first shot Brown supposedly got up and continued to charge at the cop. Only then does the officer send the death blow into Brown.
Then there is a case like Aswan Watson who was also shot and killed but this time by plainclothes (undercover) police officers who found him in a stolen car. As the officers approached him, he attempted to feel around for something in the car so they opened fire but when the car was searched all that was found was an anti-theft device. No weapons in sight.
