Martin Luther King III: 'You Have to Look at Everything' Including Boycotting Georgia Peaches, Kentucky Bourbon Over 'Stand Your Ground


"These are things that my father considered in his era."

After first suggesting a boycott of Florida orange juice over the state's "stand your ground" law, Martin Luther King III said boycotts of Georgia peaches, Kentucky bourbon and Gulf Coast shrimp should be on the table to protest similar statutes in those states as well.

"We may have to look at -- I think from a strategic standpoint you have to look at everything," King, the eldest son of Martin Luther King Jr., said on CNN Saturday. "Certainly Georgia has 'stand your ground' laws...I think the entire law, overall in all of those two plus-states needs to be looked at. And that is the strategy, I haven't said 'let's do this,' I've said these are things that have to be considered, these are things that my father considered in his era."
