Oddly, Michelle Obama once raged against White people who fail to make eye contact. “When I’ve been completely incognito, during the eight years in the White House, walking the dogs on the canal, people will come up and pet my dogs, but will not look me in the eye,” Obama said. “[It's] so telling of how White America views people who are not like them. You know, we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that’s exhausting.” [source]
So, if White people don't look at Blacks, it's evidence of White racism. If they do look at Blacks, Whites get shot because (ahem) they see Blacks as a threat.
