TODAY live webinar: Tackling racism in Singapore

50:07 Min
Racism has made the headlines more than usual in the past year, partly as anxiety and stress over Covid-19 manifested itself in ugly ways. Younger Singaporeans also seem bolder and less restrained about speaking out on issues such as racism that were once deemed too sensitive to debate openly. Has racism actually been on the rise, or are we more aware of it because of social media? And how can our society move forward from here? Guests on the panel are: - Ng Jun Sen, TODAY Correspondent - Laavanya Kathiravelu, Assistant Professor of Sociology, NTU - Mohamed Imran Mohamed Taib, founding board member of Centre for Interfaith Understanding
