You're mixing up what I posted and what Aine posted, in one reply.
I didn't call them terrorists. In fact I didn't call them anything. From what I can see, they're a bunch of armed insurrectionists with guns, who happen to be white.
The point I was making is that if they were black or Muslim, there's a good chance they'd be dead by now, given the recent antipathy in the US to the Black Lives Matter movement, and to Muslim extremism. Law enforcement officials operate on a very short fuse. Anything could set them off, and as we've seen in recent months, if you're black, you're very likely to be killed in any confrontation with a police officer. If you're Muslim, you're automatically an object of hatred in the US.
It's not unreasonable to conclude the outcome of this siege, or whatever it's called, would already be very different by now, if they were either black or Muslim. And that's not being racist - it's stating the obvious.
Read the article I posted above. Here's another:
