Both "pulp" and "noir" are misused so often these days it can't just
be the cool kids doing it.
I'm also getting pretty fed up with "urban" and "street," both now
often used as a euphemism for black, mostly because it seems to be a
catch-all phrase to excuse some of the most insulting, pandering grade-
Z old school racial stereotypes imaginable -- the sort of stuff most
non-black authors would never get away with.
Or am I imagining it?
