In 2019, Apple CEO Tim Cook quoted MLK via his Twitter account, “Sixty years ago, Dr. King called on all of us to make a career of humanity. ‘You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.'”

MacDailyNews Take: Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the U.S. and the markets are closed. As usual on such trading holidays, we will have limited posting today.

  1. If this were anything but virtue signaling, I’d say bravo. It isn’t. They cannot simultaneously support King and BLM, who have very vocally denounced King. Very sad for that mentality to create cynicism such as this, but Apple are hypocrites, and they are indeed a corporation, not a person, and certainly not your ‘friend’.

    1. You fool BLM has never denounced the Reverend Doctor MLK Jr. How uniformed you are. Only violent haters is you and your trump supporters. You are the communist. Sad.

      1. BLM may have never denounced MLK directly, but their oppressor/oppressed paradigm is antithetically in contrast. Their entire MO is to position a foe–a grouping NOT based on anything related to character–but based on skin color, status, position and to degrade, intimidate, and or, to shame. They care little/none for the heralded words of MLK, to let character be the “measure.”

        Degrading a group is EXACTLY what MLK was speaking against.

        The BLM MO is principally synonymous with the Marxist…it’s all about the oppressed/oppressor. Take this element away and BLM is an empty shirt.

        1. “White America needs to understand that it is poisoned to its soul by racism and the understanding needs to be carefully documented and consequently more difficult to reject. The present crisis arises because although it is historically imperative that our society take the next step to equality, we find ourselves psychologically and socially imprisoned. All too many white Americans are horrified not with conditions of Negro life but with the product of these conditions-the Negro himself.
          White America is seeking to keep the walls of segregation substantially intact while the evolution of society and the Negro’s desperation is causing them to crumble. The white majority, unprepared and unwilling to accept radical structural change, is resisting and producing chaos while complaining that if there were no chaos orderly change would come.”
          Martin Luther King, speech to the American Psychological Association, September 1967

  2. Apple hates MLK because he detested judgements based “on the color of one’s skin”. Apple has given hundreds of millions of dollars to the racist, white hating BLM, which is a communist group that seeks to sow dissent and destruction. Apple might as well just be a criminal enterprise, it is so committed to destroying all things that are good. Like, MLKs dream of a society that was blind to color.

  3. You can always tell people who’ve never read a lick of King’s writings when the only quote they know is the “content of their character” line from the Dream speech. They spin a whole BS fantasy world of what King would supposedly believe from one ripped-out-of-context quote. Especially any of the troglodytes (above) who create straw men of Black Lives Matter, when the whole summation of what BLM stands for is IN. THE. NAME.

    sheesh

        1. Not as hard as it to see the real world when racism colors everything.
          Every failure you’ve ever had you’ve probably blamed on racism.

          From what you have written here, you are the failure.
          Not our society…

    1. “There must be a recognition on the part of everybody in this nation that America is still a racist country…And we will never solve the problem of racism until there is a recognition of the fact that racism still stands at the center of so much of our nation.” Martin Luther King, March 1968, Grosse Point, MI.
