If the fire bomber had been asian "in the absence of any other possible motive" i assume they would have probably branded him a terrorist.
If this is the same incident that i was just watching on the news - apparently the arsonist was involved in 3 such attacks - all on asian shops/shop owners. if that is the case, racist motivation would certainly be a distinct possiblity. though of course a lot more asian shops are open at all sorts of hours which probably makes them easier targets.
