Stevie Wonder has gone on record to say that he will not perform in Florida or any other state that has Stand Your Ground laws after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial
. Although, the law was not used in the George Zimmerman trial by the defense, it was the reason police did not arrest him until weeks after the shooting and it was used in the jury instructions. When Stevie says something like this, I believe him. He won't play Florida. I'm not sure if he realizes there are 23 other states with similar laws. Apparently Jay-Z and Kanye have also decided to boycott performing in Florida. For Jay-Z there is just one little problem. He is set to play in Florida next month with Justin Timberlake and will make millions of dollars from the concert. So, boycott shmoycott, he will play. He also has said that he will take the boycott on a case by case basis. So, if the check is large enough, then the boycott will not stand in his way. Presumably Kanye will do the same thing. What is the point of announcing a boycott if you don't actually boycott?
