Cost of Racial Blindness

As this video illustrates, trying to avoid appearing racist can have a reverse effect of actually impeding communication and elevating racial bias.

Good workplaces need to be honest about race, acknowledging racial differences.

How can this apply in the Singapore context? Do we try too hard to avoid talking about it then we sweep glaring race-related issues and problems under the carpet of political correctness? Or does our state’s CMIO classification system make us incredibly averse to discussing race informally?
