30 July 2019

The recent E-Pay advertisement featuring Dennis Chew was inappropriate, ill-judged and in poor taste. It is 2019. If the parties involved, or any other organisation, would like some training and capability development around ethnic considerations, cultural sensitivity and how to apologise sincerely, we at OnePeople.sg would be more than happy to help.

Preeti and Subhas Nair’s rap video in response to the advertisement is also offensive. In addition it is vulgar, aggressive, and does nothing to help either the initial mistake nor the circumstances that allowed it to happen. As the performers suggest, two wrongs don’t make a right. They do not seem to have heeded their own advice. We did not get this far in race relations, by trading one offense for another.

We are better than either of these two examples. I find them both unacceptable.

We have more work to do as a society to heal rifts, cross divides and become One People.

We need to be better than this.
