Boycott Florida?

April 3, 2012

Activists in New Jersey are calling for a boycott of the entire state of Florida until there is “justice” in the Trayvon Martin case.

“Any product manufactured in the state of Florida — let it stay there,” James Carey, chairman of the Elizabeth chapter of the People’s Organization for Progress, told the more than 100 people gathered at the New Hope Memorial Baptist Church “we will not patronize the state of Florida until justice is done.”

You know who is not in favor of a boycott? The African-American Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida. Also not in favor: the 17% of black people in Florida who are unemployed.

And your mother. Because you don’t eat enough fruit. Vitamin C prevents colds, you know.
