Maybe "patronizing" doesn't mean what I think it means.

Because it seems to me that if you are both fat, and also can't sing, then you are useless to society. All these stupid videos about ugly or fat, or old people who happen to be able to sing, just go to make old, fat, ugly people who can't sing feel worse about their lives. Who gives a flying crap if he can sing. Does that prove he is a good or bad person, or he has worth and value to society? Would your prejudging of him have been "correct" if he didn't have a great voice?
PS If I were one to buy into stereotypes, I'd say that fat people being able to sing opera is probably a stereotype, so why in the hell would it surprise anyone that this kid can sing.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
