    From this Wikipedia description, it not only involves blacks but also people from other groups. If it were called "street literature" there would be no euphemism, I think. Urban still means from the city, though given the state of many American cities... maybe these kids are on to something.



    If there are worthy or promising hardboiled or noir authors of street lit, perhaps we should take a look, no?
