Two music legends took giant steps backward this week when they weighed in on the political side of justice.
For Stevie Wonder, one of my favorite entertainers, to announce he’ll never perform in Florida again, until their “Stand Your Grand Laws” are repealed, is an insult to millions of Floridians who approve of it.
The threat to perform in States without such laws means there are only 20 left, as 30 have some form of an expanded right to defend.
As if that iconic gaffe wasn’t enough, the next day we learn Rolling Stone Magazine, onto which every rocker wishes to appear, decides to make a glamour king out of terrorist punk number 2, who killed four and injured 200, during the hell week that began with the Boston Marathon bombings.
These people simply don’t get the point of justice.
It’s not about politics, it’s supposed to be blind to how people look (tell me Mohammed Atta, the ugliest 9/11 terrorist on the planet, would ever make their cover).
And maybe if Stevie could have seen that George Zimmerman looks more Hispanic than Caucasian, he might not have acted so very superstitiously.
As for the Ragazine?
They undid the fame Dr. Hook gave them.
Talk about blowing their own mind.
