    I have just been charged with racially aggravated common assault (*****ed an indian colleague at work). I was wondering basically how this offence is dealt with in other countries if the bull was on the other foot, (like say if you are a white man in Japan or the Middle East and you are attacked by a native) how would the judicial system in those countries work?

    In a lot of nations it would be taken far less seriously, we are one of the most progressive nations when it comes to issues of race, equality and so forth.

    I think that makes the difference here - if you hit him because he's Indian then that is fair enough, but if they're charging you with racially aggravated assault just because he's Indian then they're the racists here.
