Tim Cook Publishes Open Letter On Racism

Business Insider reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook has published an open letter on racism.

The letter comes after Cook and Apple faced criticism for not speaking up publicly on the death of George Floyd.

In the letter, Cook describes a history of "deeply rooted discrimination" in America.

He said we must do more to "guarantee freedom from fear" for every person.

The letter is very similar to a memo Cook sent Apple employees earlier this week.
