Re: “Why don't we call white extremists terrorists?

Atrocities by whites are on the furthest end of a continuum which begins at its least violent with racism in textbooks, continues with the systematic racism of discrimination in employment (including employment compensation, "minimum wage jobs," in other words), through racism in arbitrary stops and arrests by police, higher incarceration rates of minorities, and on to the use of violent police tactics on protesters, and finally the brutality of the Klan and other racists. The latter is part of a SYSTEMATIC form of racist brutality which has been going on since the first African was brought in chains to these shores.
This continuum is subtle in that there is not hiatus between one form of racism and the next, so that in effect, it is hard to say where terrorism really begins, if by "terrorism" you mean the commonly accepted definition of the use of fear to achieve political ends. In practice, though, ALL of these forms reinforce each other, and so focussing a single incident and labeling it terrorism is difficult to do. Especially if your myopia makes it impossible to focus.
