Can Singaporeans Truly Live 'Regardless Of Race'?

I missed the Channel NewsAsia documentary ‘Regardless Of Race’ when it aired on TV, so I watched it on Toggle.sg instead. Hosted by Janil Puthucheary, Chairperson of Onepeople.sg, the film sought to tease out Singaporeans’ thoughts on our race relations. But I guess a TV programme will have its (obvious) limitations – people are unlikely to speak their minds if they know that what they say will go out to the ENTIRE nation. So was this ultimately an exercise in futility or will it spark some kind of meaningful conversation? And why did this air now (so coincidental!), just as we are talking about which race our elected President (and perhaps also, our next PM) should (or can) come from?
