Stevie Wonder is not happy with the Supremes

Legendary singer Stevie Wonder is very dissapointed in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Recently Wonder preformed in Chicago’s Grant Park as part of the city’s “Taste of Chicago” celebration.

As thousands of Chicagoans and tourists (DC Dicta included) looked on during the warm Saturday afternoon, Wonder took the stage and warmly greeted the audience.

But before singing a single note, Wonder got political, making comments that touched on everything from Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy (Wonder is pretty psyched about that) to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Specifically, he said he isn’t happy with a certain decision penned by Justice Antonin Scalia.

“I have to say I am very, very disappointed with the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on handguns,” Wonder told the audience, referring to the D.C. v. Heller ruling invalidating Washington D.C.’s handgun ban, which was handed down just days before Wonder’s performance.

That wasn’t the only taste of Washington that was included in Wonder’s performance. Special guests Wonder brought up on stage during the two-hour performance included Rev. Jesse Jackson and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers, Jr.
