Apple Maps uppdateras för att visa gigantisk Black Lives Matter-mural i Washington DC

Från sajten:

Apple har redan uppdaterat satelitbilderna i sin karttjänst för att visa muralmålningen som sträcker sig över två kvarter längs 16th Street, nära Vita Huset, som avtäcktes i fredags.

Borgmästaren i Washington DC, Muriel Bowser, har även döpt om platsen till Black Lives Matter Plaza.

Apple har kommenterat den pågående proteströrelsen genom ett öppet brev på Apples webbplats skrivet av Tim Cook med titeln Speaking up on racism.

Ett utdrag:

”This is a moment when many people may want nothing more than a return to normalcy, or to a status quo that is only comfortable if we avert our gaze from injustice. As difficult as it may be to admit, that desire is itself a sign of privilege. George Floyd’s death is shocking and tragic proof that we must aim far higher than a “normal” future, and build one that lives up to the highest ideals of equality and justice.

In the words of Martin Luther King, “Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.”

With every breath we take, we must commit to being that change, and to creating a better, more just world for everyone.”
