Stevie Wonder Refuses To Perform In The ‘Stand Your Ground’ State
By: Madam Prezident
Stevie Wonder says he won’t perform in the state of Florida. Stevie Wonder doesn’t believe in the “stand your ground” law, and he won’t perform in any place tat enforces that particular law. Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest artist in the world and the fact that he has made a conscience decision to not perform in Florida-says a lot about who Stevie Wonder really is. Now, who else will follow his lead?
In a video posted on YouTube, the 63-year-old singer said at a concert in Quebec City, Canada, on Sunday “that until the ‘stand your ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again.” Wonder added: “Wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.” The “stand your ground” law allows people to use deadly force if they believe their life is in danger.George Zimmerman shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a February 2012 confrontation in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman said he fired his gun in self-defense.
A six-member jury acquitted Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges on Saturday.
