Swimming in a sea of racism

The Ferguson verdict brings a new theory on race relations - white people can't see they are racist.
They'd agree with protesting the verdict, except they don't understand how upset blacks can be about feeling targeted.
Maybe there's misunderstanding, and it's not on the white side.
Maybe it's right to trust the police.
They are trying their best to do their job in a color-blind fashion - looking at the lawbreaking and not the lawbreaker.
If you ignore lawbreaking and focus on race instead, it's not going to be understood by someone hoping to be kept safe.
Maybe liberals are swimming in a sea of denial - ignoring the logical reasons for whites to support the Ferguson police department and their colleagues across the country.
