Stevie Wonder and Friends Boycott Florida Over ‘Stand Your Ground’

Written by Angel Rodriguez on July 25, 2013

Stevie Wonder is a musical genius, he seems like a nice guy, and I admire his work. However on this matter we do not agree. As a musician myself, I often struggle when I have to endure politics that I don’t necessarily agree with from other artists. 9/10 times at a show someone will do a piece that is completely against my personal views. However, as an artist, I have to be aware that most of my peers will be Liberal in nature. It is quite evident by these “boycott” threats from all these artists.  All the same, it is quite humorous that most haven’t actually solidified their boycott commitment. Who wants to play with their income? “Well, I think ‘stand your ground’ is wrong, you know it’s all love right? But I got a get paid, man, I got a kid to feed”.

Stand your ground is not a pass to murder people, these guys need to read up on the law and see how it actually works. Living in NYC, I hate that we have to “retreat” and “warn” a criminal before we “defend” ourselves from their threats. In this liberal haven they will crucify a legal gun owner if they shoot someone! Even if it is evident beyond any doubt that you were defending yourself, odds are that you will do jail time. Unless you are a criminal that owns an illegal gun, then you’ll probably get away with it or at worst get a very brief sentence before you are back out on the streets committing crimes again. Go liberal logic!
