George Clinton, Parliament/Funkadelic Supports "the Spirit of the 'Boycott Florida' Movement"

Dr. George Clinton, the Godfather of Funk, "stand[s] in support of the spirit of the 'boycott Florida' movement" launched by Stevie Wonder in protest of George Zimmerman's acquittal in the Trayvon Martin case. But he also lives in the Sunshine State.

So, as the Parliament/Funkadelic founder and his management team write in a statement sent to Crossfade today, "the fact of the matter is that such a boycott cannot be practically maintained by those of us who reside in or whose base of operation is Florida."

That's why he has a few other ideas about how "to become active in the burgeoning campaign to repeal the 'Stand Your Ground' law in ALL states."
