      but in the Watts that is the way
      blacks great each other:

      "whatz up nigger?"

      so it became a joke, has no charge,
      they diffused it themselves: Criss Rock
      Arsenio Hall ..they have a ball with it

      same here with the "jewish princess"

      but I do accept your valid claim

      no o no

      I had no such intenton!

      a jewish princess is someone unreasonable

      must have her own way or the tantrums
      are flying

      spoiled by a very very rich daddy

      must have luxury

      demands attention and feels she is
      above and better than anyone

      impossible to please

      has very little or non to do with
      a hardworking Russian immigrant

      yes yes I'll

      ps: Bob thanks for exposing me to
      your ethics I love it
