    “I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,” Wonder said Sunday while performing in Quebec City. “As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.”

    1. Stevie Wonder has the best idea I’ve heard yet, but I would go one step further. Not only do all black entertainers need to boycott Florida. But all black people in Florida need to show their solidarity by taking a day off from Florida. We all need to get in our cars and just drive out of the state for a day. From Miami to Jacksonville. If you don’t have a ride just stand outside and someone will pick you up. That would be a day making history. Can we do it?

    2. Okay. This is a start. I hope others with influence will step up sooner rather than later. Personally, we can all do our part. We can stay away from the tourist attractions in Florida, we can tell our kids and grandkids to skip going to Datona Beach on Spring break. Florida stock in trade is tourism and sometimes the only thing that talks is money.
