On March 18, two policemen in Sacramento, California, shot and killed 22-year-old Stephon Clark in the backyard of his grandparents' apartment. It is not the first out-of-court execution of a black man by the police, and if there is no change soon, it probably will not be the last. The nation is watching the consequences of this shootout, and understandably many of us have questions for local and national government officials, which, if anything, is being done to prevent this from happening again.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, aka Suckabee, was asked if the White House had responded to the public outcry for justice in the shootings of black men and women by the police , Sanders said, "This is something that is a local matter, and that's something we think should be left to the local authorities at this point," added the President, wholeheartedly supporting the law enforcement agencies.
It is incredibly disturbing – but not surprising that the President does not find this topic important enough to deal with. Black bodies have never been more than work and abuse benefits in this country.
We have always been seen as "less than".

Donald Trump's appointed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has done everything to make it clear that he cares more about the protection of police officers than about people. "
The fact is, that every single American, irrespective of race, color, or belief, has to worry about the current state of affairs where an officer has to say, "I was afraid for my life." To be relieved when killing.
It There's got to be a federal investigation into every shootout of the police, but that will not happen because our government just does not care. "Black people are not important enough to talk about these death threats to make a big deal.

As a deputy Cedric Richmond (D-La.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said in a press release Wednesday:  That the White House must respond to the sadness and anger of millions of Americans as a "local matter" is the culmination of immoral analysis. The White House statement is at best ignorant, and in the worst case negligibly repellent. Families mourning the loss of relatives in Sacramento, Baton Rouge, Ferguson, St Paul, Charleston, Staten Island, Baltimore, Tulsa, and other communities would disagree with the White House's assessment that this was a local affair. Studies have shown that black people are killed by the police in proportion to our composition in the US population. This is shameful and an international embarrassment.
Enough is enough. We are tired. We want justice.
I am not really confident that we will get it because neither the White House, the President, the Attorney General nor our elected representatives are interested in backward people.
