That's because there's a lot more white men in America, not because they're more dangerous. If we assume there are 2 million Muslim foreigners in the country, and 1 in 10,000 is a terrorist, and there are 100 million white men in the country, and only 1 in 100,000 of them are terroristic, you're still going to see 5 times as many white terrorists as Muslim ones, despite the fact that Muslim foreigners are 10 times more likely to be a terrorist in this situation.

You would be better off getting this same data from countries like Germany, France, and Sweden, who have recently taken in a large amount of Muslim people.That way the bias from population percentage is removed. Look at those figures and I expect you will see a different story.
