Well, I suppose it's better than going broke for the immoral cloak. At least with the moral cloak, you get to feel good about yourself while you're bankrupt.

Actually no. Most people are just decent human beings. I know that’s hard for an apartheid prince to understand. But it’s true. It’s not a cloak. It’s actual morality. And it’s not “going woke.” It’s just being a halfway decent human who isn’t a blatant racist. Cheers. https://t.co/bB1Lyn1s8C

Elon Musk’s statement has spread like fire on social media and everyone is voicing their opinions regarding this matter, some for and many against it. Just like how people are morally cloaked to inequality through meritocracy, people nowadays are very profound in their opinions and sensitive to others’ expressions that are directed towards them. Just like how people are very sensitive to changes or to accept diversity in their culture, being woke is on a similar level to many and Elon Musk has just made a mockery of them with just one line.
