Moriarty must be careful of racial stereotyping - Evelyn is telling her mother that her aura is bad and the author in the dialogue expresses black being synonymous with bad as follows:
"I've got a bad aura,,Mom".............
"It's black. My vibe, my aura is black."
It's time authors are sensitive to language stereotyping and stop it.
