Making ‘race-related’ comments while filming a fellow commuter. Using racial slurs while kicking a woman on the chest. Dubbing the B1617 variant that emerged from India as the ‘Indian variant’Websites fanning racism calling Indians ‘cockroaches’, ‘rapists’, etc. Recent cases involving race and discrimination in Singapore have been causing a stir within the society, and by extension, the parliament. Public attitudes to race seem to be complex, but are our responses to racism equally complex as well?
