"racist" attacks? Was it Pakistani's or Blacks that beat him up?
Assuming they didn't know he was Polish before they stuck the boot in, saying it was racially motivated is just to help the crime get the headlines.
However, assault is assault. The guy's wounds aren't going to heal any quicker whether it was racially motivated or not.
They should still chuck these thugs in the slammer for a couple of years regardless of the motivation.
We're far too lenient on criminals like this.
