Suggested boycott of the day: Florida orange juice?


A few days ago I ran across some people on Twitter who were asking half-jokingly, “what’s next, a boycott of Florida orange juice because of Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law?”

Which brings us to this headline from CBS News: Martin Luther King III suggests Fla. orange juice boycott to protest “Stand Your Ground” law

Punish orange growers for a state law that had nothing to do with Zimmerman’s acquittal? That sounds about right.

Just to put the official seal of “dumb” on this story, Al Sharpton agrees: Boycott orange juice we much.
