    I bet you think I'm a racist.

    So, describe what kind of racist you think I am. Do I wear a white hood? Am I a supremacist? I'm interested in your perception.

Why would anyone think you're a racist? I want quote you correctly here: "if the statistics reversed, where white people started committing the highest percent of violent crimes, that cops (or people in general), would not at a subconscious level feel differently and act accordingly?" In other words, since a minority of black people are criminals, police should treat all black people as if they are criminals. That is essentially what you're arguing here.

In addition, you also stated: "Let’s say, for example, that white Canadians started becoming rampant terrorists, and that there’s a few white Canadians who proudly fly their Canadian flag in my neighborhood. Is it unreasonable for me at a subconscious level to not feel my Spidey-Sense tingling?" So again, you're arguing that since a minority of Muslims are terrorists, it is perfectly fine to be afraid of all Muslims.

It is irrational to believe that the actions of the minority should dictate how the majority is treated. Some would even say that it is racist thinking. You're probably not racist. You're more likely a self-centered a-hole who can't be bothered to care about something that doesn't effect you. Or at least can't be bothered to care about people that you can't identify with.
