Whether right or wrong, comparing these ranchers protesting the management of their environment and livelihood by the government to the murderous barbarity of ISIS or terrorism or thugs is absurd. And to side with the state, of all horrible things, over the people who protest over the properties, communities and environments within which they live and live out their lives, is even worse.
we get the absurd question from the media and its acolytes “What if they were black?” or “What if they were Muslim?”

The Philadelphia-based black liberation group, MOVE protested for civil rights, racism, police brutality and other issues.
They were Bombed. 65 houses blown up to crumbles.
Its evident white people in America are treated differently by the media because America is prominently white, and if they start treating you like the rest of them, its harder to justify and will become evident that that he estalishment are standing for nobody, not even the immigrant/native white Americans.
In 1981, MOVE relocated to a row house at 6221 Osage Avenue in the Cobbs Creek area of West Philadelphia. After the move, neighbors complained for years that MOVE members were broadcasting political messages by bullhorn at all hours and also about the health hazards created from piles ofcompost. After the complaints as well asindictments of numerous[quantify] MOVE members for crimes including parole violations, contempt of court, illegal possession of firearms, and making terrorist threats, then-Mayor W. Wilson Goode and police commissioner Gregore J. Sambor had begun classifying MOVE as a terrorist organization.
On May 13, 1985, the police, along with city manager Leo Brooks, arrived in force with arrest warrants and attempted to clear the building and arrest the indicted MOVE members. This led to an armed standoffwith police, who lobbed tear gas canisters at the building. MOVE members fired at the police, who returned fire with automatic weapons. Commissioner Sambor then ordered that the compound be bombed.From a Pennsylvania State Police helicopter,Philadelphia Police Department Lt. Frank Powell proceeded to drop two one-pound bombs (which the police referred to as "entry devices") made of FBI-supplied water gel explosive, a dynamite substitute, targeting a fortified, bunker-like cubicle on the roof of the house.

As long as no one gets shot, killed or threats on surrounding citizens...you can call it what you want but it definitely has nothing to do with racism, religion, or terrorism. This is a merely a guarded protest by a local group of people standing up for what they believe in.

It's not about skin color as much as you want to try. It's about holding the same standards for everyone, not just groups you prefer.
The bomb was dropped on a fortified emplacement on the roof.
It started a fire and that burned 65 houses.
