Are you kidding me?? Now the race baiters are calling to keep out of Florida. We all know this isn't anything related to SYG. Otherwise they would also be calling for the same thing in 20+ other states. This is obviously about GZ Not guilty verdict.

Wow... think their going to miss Stevie Wonder? I like the guys music but is this really going to influence others and be effective... will they next stop buying Fla oranges?

"Florida is not a safe place to take your family for vacation as long as Florida law permits a citizen to shoot or kill you for merely looking suspicious, and to do it with impunity. Boycott Florida tourism until this dangerous law is overturned. If the murder of Trayvon Martin isn't enough to get lawmaker's attention, maybe a loss in revenue to the state would be."

The petition is from "MoveOn.org"... That really says it all, if you know what I mean...

This seems to me to be more related to the 2A and self defense laws than to racial issue.

Also seems to be a dumb idea

When I was working in SF the beach patrol ran over two British sunbathers and killed them.

Old has-beens that nobody cares about and few even heard of often are desperate for media attention. No one cares. Everyone understands that every liberal and African-American talking head is taking the African-American guy's side because of his race.

It would appear as a loyalty to their race, every African-American has to rage that African-Americans should be allowed violently attack anyone who isn't black if they don't like how the person is looking at them - and anyone who doesn't agree with them is a racist.

OH, BTW, Stevie Wonder doesn't do concerts. The attached link shows his concert schedule - ZERO! He's ancient history and wasn't even significant back-then

http://concerttour.org/stevie-wonder-tour

He is hoping that this public kiss-ass of the left will mean some rich white liberal in Hollywood or NYC will hire him to come play at one of their millionaire's only charity fund raisers to the noble cause buying some million dollar piece of art for a $20 admission art gallery somewhere.

So... like Steve Wonder, I refuse to any performances in the White House until Obama apologized for his racist statement about Trayvon Martin, when Zimmerman is 100% as much the same race as Obama.

And like Stevie Wonder, I wish someone would ask me to do some kind of concert performance at the White House - or anywhere - so I could refuse to do it. :roll:

Black Americans have a successful history of using Boycotts to get change. Back then it was a good strategy and the changes were overdue.

But here it seems mostly about getting Feds to charge GZ with Civil Rights violations.. and get him locked up.

I can't see this happening.

Stevie Wonder did - decades ago - do a song with this line in it (For some reason I heard it once and always remembered it.)

"Something's grab get you.
Somethings gonna jump out of the bushed as grab you.
Hold on, You better run faster."

Seems of some relevance to the TM/GZ incident.

(Then again, in one sense the lyrics of the whole song is the psychotic male stalker's song)

Let me get this straight... this petition was started by MoveOn.org?

Do they not realize that most of their audience can't even scrape together enough money to attend an OWS rally more than ten miles away? Christ, the most that could happen as a result of this is that the state of Florida would SAVE money by not having to arrest and detain a bunch of transients.

Its the same thing when Arizona enacted anti-illegal immigration laws laws and all the pro-illegal scum were trying to boycott Arizona.That boycott never worked so I do not see this boycott working either.

Are you kidding me?? Now the race baiters are calling to keep out of Florida. We all know this isn't anything related to SYG. Otherwise they would also be calling for the same thing in 20+ other states. This is obviously about GZ Not guilty verdict.

Wow... think their going to miss Stevie Wonder? I like the guys music but is this really going to influence others and be effective... will they next stop buying Fla oranges?

"Florida is not a safe place to take your family for vacation as long as Florida law permits a citizen to shoot or kill you for merely looking suspicious, and to do it with impunity. Boycott Florida tourism until this dangerous law is overturned. If the murder of Trayvon Martin isn't enough to get lawmaker's attention, maybe a loss in revenue to the state would be."

There were already plenty of reasons to avoid Florida.

Oh no! Some completely unrelated crap that has nothing to do with the OP. Color me surprised!
