It's a movie w/Halle Berry - very funny stuff. You should check it out if you can find it.

The movie was ok, but what gets me is that the two ladies in the movie were so NOT B. A. P.S.

I mean just because one is a woman and jewish does not make you a J.A.P

and just because one is black and and a woman does not make you a B. A. P.

Hmm Hey I think Treu and the gang can be G. A. P. S Gay american Princess,

I didn't like the movie at all and you're so right: Halle and Natalie Deselle were NOT BAPS; they were country bumpkins.

Good examples of BAPs would be the likes of Karyn Parsons (Hillary on "Fresh Prince of Bel Air") and Jasmine Guy (Whitley on "A Different World").

But I digress...

It was tie for between Serena and Alex but Serena eventually prevailed because she has more money.

P.S. Venus is too introspective to be a BAP.

Serena is pretty much the '____ American Princess' on the tour period.

She designs her own clothes.
She wears diamonds on court.
She's the best in the world.

The 'Black' is ancillary. If she was a white Jew, we'd be trying to figure how to call her a JAP and not sound anti-Semetic. If she were White, they'd just call her 'glamorous' or something, but it comes to the same thing.

'American Princess' is a style. It comes in two flavors, 'warm' and 'cold'. Serena's a friendly gregarious person. Just imagine if she was arrogant, cold, nasty and distainful; and wore diamonds on court, designed her own clothes and was the reigning French and Wimbledon champ.


Or rather, don't. It's really too awful to contemplate. A personality like that at #1 in the world would be quite unpleasant.

NOTE: Alex is no American Princess. She's just another girl vacillating between shy and funny as she moves into adulthood. 'American Princess-hood' comes with a confidence and sense of entitlement Alex just doesn't have.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Niminator, don't take it to heart; cybell was being playful. And, being gay myself, honeychild, I know there are LOTS of GAPs out there and even some up in here. How YOU Doin'

Volcana, I completely agree: Serena is the ultimate BAP but I also disagree: BAPs can be petulant and "female-doggish".

Wink Visual and textual aid



Black American Princess: 1 : a pampered female of African American descent, born to an upper-middle or upper-class family 2 : an African American female whose life experiences give her a sense of royalty and entitlement 3 : BAP (acronym) : colloquial expression 4 : an African American female accustomed to the best and nothing less.

P.S. Mashona could be a BAP, too. Didn't she grow up in an affluent Michigan neighborhood?
