Does the killing of George Floyd and Eric Garner say something. What needs to change and how?

We see this often, a black youth is killed by police. There are two broad groups in reaction to this.

Those who generally stay quiet are in one group. They would say the whole story is different from what the media says. They are the people who would say, "Back the Badge" or "Blue Lives Matter", and are generally of that opinion based on crime statistics done by blacks is disproportionately higher given that they are 13% of the population, or that police brutality leading to deaths exists for other races too but the media doesn't show it.

Then there is the other side of people who say "Black Lives Matter", and are generally of the opinion that there is apathy and racism towards blacks. As we saw in the recent case of the white woman walking a dog - who said "an African American man is threatening me" - weaponizing his race against him. This group also feels that when a black youth is shot, people just talk about it, have apathy and don't bother much.

So to ask these relevant questions:
1. Is there anything black youths do that makes them more prone to this type of treatment? Or is this general police brutality which is hyped when black are killed?
2. Is this assertion fair in light of the deaths of men like George Floyd and Eric Garner given that we have the videos?
It's very wrong and something needs to be done (explain what)

It's the media hyping these things when a black man is killed, it's not the fault of the police
