Stevie Wonder is boycotting Florida, but I don’t understand why. I can certainly understand if he doesn’t regard the Sunshine State as the sunshine of his life. That’s fine.
But rather than boycott the whole state, he should just call and say he loves them. That would do more to improve relations between ebony and ivory.
Even if George Zimmerman was a racist murderer, and the jury members were all racists, to go on and condemn the entire state of Florida seems to be based on superstition. Maybe he’s a part-time thinker. He’s too uptight, anyway, and everything is not all right.
He should seek higher ground. After all, he has the advantage. He’s not in Florida, a state with a maximum elevation of only 345 feet.
The confrontation between Zimmerman and Martin was personal to them, and should not be allowed to divide the rest of us. And the jury’s verdict was signed, sealed, and delivered, and there’s nothing we can do about it. To take that verdict and go on to judge a whole state constitutes discrimination more worthy of David Duke, sir.
As for Rachel Jeantel, Martin’s Cherie Amour . . .
