MLK III Wants to Put the Squeeze on Florida’s Orange Juice

by Sterling Beard

There are plenty of calls for Florida boycotts these days, but Martin Luther King III has a unique method in mind for pressuring the Sunshine State over its Stand Your Ground law: Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest son called for a boycott on the state’s orange juice at the NAACP’s national convention in Florida yesterday.

CBS News quotes King, “The true way generally when people don’t understand your plight is when you decide to exercise your buying power elsewhere.”
