Well, that's a good question, isn't it?  Your rationale would seem to 
support racial profiling, something that you've condemned here in the past. 
You're getting tied up in knots here, Bill.

I would probably have a strong aversion to people who punched me in the head 
and try to figure out why they are doing it.  It probably has nothing to do 
with skin pigmentation and a lot to do with cultural or other factors.  It's 
easy to fall into that trap of just ascribing evil to every black person, 
which is what racists do, Bill.  And you seem to suggest that there is 
nothing wrong with that.  It's so odd.
