"Holloway House, the publisher that puts out pretty much all Donald Goines's these days, also carries a ton of stuff like that (e.g. "Black Hit Woman", "Street of Ho's", "Memoirs of a Black Casanova") that is so ridiculously cliched and stereotypical, I can't believe that it wasn't a 50-year-old white guy in the 1970s writing it."

Well, Black Hit Woman was credited to Laurie Miles, "as told to Leo Guild." May be something to your inference.
