So terrible.

A police officer has been shot in another alleged ambush on law enforcement.

And, the tragic killings of two apparently unarmed black men by law enforcement has gotten Amber Rose incredibly emotional.

On Thursday, the feminist took to Instagram to open up about how these devastating deaths hit pretty close to home because her three-year-old son with Wiz Khalifa, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, is black.

The gorgeous gal posted a precious picture of her little boy, and wrote in the caption that she spent the day consoling a toddler who was blissfully unaware of the tragedies rocking our country, writing:

President Barack Obama is speaking up after these terrible tragedies.

This week, two black men were shot and killed by police officers in two separate shootings that took place within one day of each other.

On Tuesday, Alton Sterling was pinned to the ground in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by two cops, when one of the responding officers fired multiple rounds into him, claiming he was armed.

Then, on Wednesday, Philando Castile was shot multiple times by a police officer during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota as he was reaching for his license and registration.

Both men died from their injuries.

And now, the Commander-in-Chief has made a moving statement about the poor victims after landing in Poland on Thursday, saying:

"When incidents like this occur, there's a big chunk of our citizenry that feels like, because of the color of their skin, they're not being treated the same. And that hurts. That should trouble all of us…. This is not just a black issue. It's not just a Hispanic issue. It's an American issue."

He also pushed for a more widespread adoption of the Task Force on 21st Century Policing that he set up two years ago, adding:
