TWO MEN who attacked a black teenager after calling him a "stinking nigger" escaped jail yesterday after an Old Bailey judge said they were not "deep-seated racists".

Despite the abuse aimed at Marlon Watson, 19, Judge Peter Fingret accepted that Timothy Heat, also 19, and Jason Huczek, 28, "mix well" with people of all ethnic origins. The men, who admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray, were placed on probation for two years and ordered to do 100 hours community service.
