Hide your kids, hide your...snicker?

So, everyone knows the  "hide your kids, hide your wife guy", Antoine Dodson. I met him recently at a party. He is soft spoken and coy. We talked awhile and he said his new-found fame scared him. My sister, Ali, who is a saucy actress, straight asked him if he had talent to back up his fame and he informed us that he sings. His new album comes out soon. When we asked if he would give us a sample Antoine obliged-- and he can sing. Without auto-tune. (=

As I watched him I thought how odd fame is. This shy, effeminate, sweet man became famous because everyone mocked his heartfelt and worked up response to a rapist entering his house and attacking his sister. The Youtube video was kind of funny-- but after meeting him and talking with him, I sorta see it different. While there is nothing really wrong with being able to laugh at ourselves, I think we don't always sympathize the way we should.
So, although I can still laugh (like when you see someone wipe out) I do care. Really, I do. Teehee!
 And Antoine-- you are a brave guy. Good on you for rescuing your sister! Run and tell that--homeboy!
