Stevie Wonder, is an American singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and was a child prodigy who developed into one of the most creative musical figures of the late 20th century. Stevie stated “I decided today that until the ‘stand your ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,” Wonder told the audience at a concert in Quebec on Sunday night. “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.”Mr.Wonder was referring to the Zimmerman Not Guilty verdict for shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin, 17 in February of last year.Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges and then our justice system handed the weapon that was use to kill Trayvon, back into the murderous trigger finger of Zimmerman. The decision that was made by six jurors has made such an uproar in all black communities around the world that there are recent reports of peaceful protests across the country and a couple reports of looting in certain cities, I think this is a cry help and injustice for Trayvon who had his hold life ahead of him and now ripped away by a man that was intimidated by a young innocent black child.
